It is very difficult to survive in deserts as they are the driest places on Earth and they remain without rain for months, sometimes even for years. The animals living in deserts adapt themselves to cope with the harsh conditions. Gerbils spend the hottest part of the day in cool underground burrows to maintain their body temperature. Beetles catch drops of moisture through their legs and consume them. Camels get moisture from desert plants and can survive for a long time without drinking water. Their humps help them to survive in deserts in which they store fat and consume it whenever required.
