Transcript of Little Sandy Desert

Little Sandy Desert The Little Sandy Desert is a desert located in Western Australia, south of the Great Sandy Desert and west of the Gibson Desert.
It is an area totaling 101,000 sq. kms of land. The Little Sandy Desert has a median annual rainfall of 150-200mm. Average annual evaporation values are 3600-4000mm. The summer mean average temperatures range from 22° C to 38.3° C. The mean average temperatures for winter range from 5.4° C to 21.3° C. Animals in this habitat The lizard is basking meaning it stays still to keep warm because lizards are cold blooded.
Its skin color camouflages with the atmosphere in order to stay safe in the predators eyes sight.
They bury themselves in the sand to escape the heat of the top layer of sand, and the direct sunlight. Spotted ctenotus Vegetation Poaceae Feathertop Mimosaceae There are 55 mammal species within this bio region. Jigalong The nearest more populous place is the village of Jigalong which is 260km away with a population of around 300. Bilby Bilbies are nocturnal and have powerful forelimbs and strong claws for digging. Their vision is poor, but their sense of smell and hearing are acute. They rarely need to drink. Silver Cassia silver cassia's have holes on the bottom of their leaves in order for the plant to sweat these holes are called stomates.These stomates are there so the plant can absorb carbon dioxide from the air, when they photosynthesize, and then release the oxygen which forms in the process.To avoid losing too much water Silver Cassias have narrow leaves which mean there are few stomates through which water can escape.
