Desert Animal Adaptations


  • The long eyelashes keep sand out of the Camels eyes.
  • Thick eyebrows shield their eyes from the desert sun.
  • A camels nostrils can close up so they don't get sand up their nose.
  • Camels store FAT in their humps, not water! The fat can be used up during storms for energy
  • Camels have thick lips so that they can eat
