A Desert Food Chain
Welcome to the desert! Some people think of the desert as a hot, dry, lifeless place. But it is full of life, with diamondback rattlesnakes stalking scorpions and coyotes prowling for rabbits after nightfall. Day and night in the desert, the hunt is on to find food--and to avoid becoming someone else's next meal. All living things are connected to one another in a food chain, from animal to animal, animal to plant, plant to insect, and insect to animal. What path will you take to follow the food chain through the desert? Will you ... Race after a roadrunner chasing her dinner? Fly with a pallid bat during her nightly insect feast? Shadow a pronghorn dining on prickly pear? Follow all three chains and many more on this who-eats-what adventure!
