Many animals in the Sonoran Desert spend most of their life Underground.
In the summer when temperatures soar, these animals burrow Underground to escape the heat of the day and come out only at night when the surface temperatures have cooled. Kit Foxes, Kangaroo Rats, Ground Squirrels, Ringtails, Tarantula, Tortoises, Gila Monsters, Horny Toads and Snakes are just some of the animals that live this nocturnal lifestyle in the Underground world of the Sonoran Desert.
