Reptiles have scaly skin to conserve moisture. They can control their body temperature by lying in the sun or moving into colder places. Amphibians like frogs and toads have soft, moist skin that absorbs oxygen from air and water. Some of them live in arid deserts but have to lay their eggs and hatch them before temporary lakes and pools dry up.

All desert dwellers have adapted to conserve water, food and energy.
