Primary Consumers of
Primary Consumers are the animals that eat plants, in the desert some primary consuimers are rabbits, camels, and kangaroo rats.
camels are primary consumers they are capeable of storing months of water in the humps on there backs! Camels have NO preditors (what a lucky camel) a regular camel can grow to be 40 years old or older. Camels were used heavily during WWI in the desert, and are still widely used.
Rabbits are adapted to the desert because they have such big ears they can detect prey or hear preditors. Rabbits look out for coyotes, and bobcats (to name a few)

Kangaroo rats are a type of rodent that can jump really high, witch helps them to be able to escape preditors including the kit fox, barn owl , and coyote. They eat seeds and sometimes store food (seeds) for the winter. Kangaroo rats are VERY solitary animals.The kangaroo rat sleeps all day and finds food at night, that helps them conserve energy.
