Animals have likewise adapted to the Mojave's harsh conditions. Desert tortoises, for instance, can store up to one quart of water in their bladder, to be re-circulated through their body in small amounts. Tortoises - and many other animals, including coyotes and rattlesnakes - burrow into the sand to avoid the sun's heat. Tortoises can spend as much as ninety-five percent of the their life underground.
The US Geological Survey has determined that the Mojave's climate is far from static, with precipitation increasing since the early s. Changing weather patterns are likely going to affect the Mojave's vegetation, and possibly cause the desert's borders to shift over the next few hundred years. Home sweet home! Where everything either bites, stings or stabs you to death! I think a big part of it is still protected as the ''Joshua tree National Park''. I went to Jr. High somewhere near Lancaster, decades ago, and was nearly killed in a car accident out in the desert. I haven't been there since, and I don't think much has changed since then New Post.
