Explore the 5 Biomes: Desert

Tundra. Aquatic. On to the desert!

Some desert biome fast facts: 

  • Deserts have less than 50cm of rain/year.
  • Deserts cover 1/5 of the Earth’s surface.
  • Most desert animals are small because larger animals usually cannot sufficiently store water or hide from the sun! (The camel excepted of course.) – Read more here.

The Grand Canyon is mostly a high altitude desert, although it’s massive formation covers more than one biome. In this short Zen Den video, fly over the Grand Canyon in a fantastic summer rain storm.
