Desert Bighorn

Desert bighorn sheep are amazingly adapted to the difficult desert conditions. They can survive without water for weeks, losing up to 30% of their body weight. They can also safely alter their body temperatures several degrees to help adapt to the rapid changes in temperatures in the desert from day to night and from season to season.
