At first glance, the desert seems dry, big, and empty. But take a second look! During the heat of the day, kangaroo rats sleep in their underground burrows while lizards sunbathe on rocks and sand. And at night, while roadrunners rest from their day of racing in the sun, bats wheel through the sky and coyotes howl at the moon.
