Example text

The fennec fox emerges from its burrow, ready to start hunting. It is careful to look and listen for predators such as eagles and hawks. Just becoming active, the horned viper side-winds across the sand. It moves its body quickly, one part at a time, so it has less contact with the hot sand. The hungry agama polishes off an evening meal of a small gecko. This is a large meal: it mostly feeds on insects such as ants and locusts. During the hot summer months, the dorcas gazelle continues to rest until nightfall.

Come face to face with the incredible creatures that struggle and survive there every day. Watch dorcas gazelles eat their breakfast at dawn. Slink through the sand with a desert monitor lizard. Midday Dawn Scurry around the dunes with a fennec fox. Find out how a flock of ostriches beats the heat. com/Ifa-Bilderteam Gmbh (tll); Ardea/Clem Haagner (tcl); FLPA/Michael & Patricia Fogden/Minden (tcr); Abdulrahman Alsirhan (trr); Science Photo Library/Art Wolfe (tr); Getty Images/Frans Lemmens (b).
