Voyage to the world's harshest environments and learn how life manages to keep a precarious hold in every desert. From the frigid expanses of Mongolia to the blistering craters of California’s Death Valley, the program examines the incredible physical and behavioral adaptations that allow creatures to survive in unimaginable conditions governed by sand storms, droughts, flash floods, and extreme temperatures. Searching for water, shelter, and other resources dominates the lives of plants and animals in a desert habitat, but unique features in the ecosystem make life possible for such creatures as guanacos, wild Bactrian camels, cacti, lizards, and red kangaroos.
