Herbivore Adaptations:


There are many herbivores there by many adaptations. The camels of the desert adapt by drinking only
water. Did you know they can go for weeks with out water!! Gophers stay in their borrows all day and
acationally grab at the top of their borrows to get food. That way their preditors can't eat them.

+ I like how you put the non-living things on your page so others can know what dosent live in the desert
- lots of misspelled words.
- Some sentences don't make sence.
-I would have liked it if you hade named more animals for the adaptations.
+ i love that i can understand every word in your project.
