    • Ways animals cope in the desert Some animals sleep during the day and only come out at night when it is cool like the kangaroo rat. They can change the dry seeds they eat into water, and they do not sweat or pant like other animals to keep cool. They spend their days in their burrows where the air is moist and humid. Some large animals look for shade during the hottest part of the day. Some animals dig a hollow pit into the ground and lie in the cooler soil. Desert Bighorn Sheep use their hooves and horns to remove spines from cacti, then eat the juicy insides.
