The R├╝ppellfuchs defies the glowing sands of Iran by saving water. The animals ingest water through their prey and hunt at night to keep their temperature cool and not to lose valuable fluid unnecessarily.

Other adaptations include the small body that dissipates heat better, a slow metabolism that saves energy, and more concentrated urine that causes less water to be lost.


Australia is known for sun, fun and exciting landscapes - but the Badlands in Queensland, Australia like to overdo it with the summer feeling. NASA satellites recorded temperatures of 69.4 ┬░ C there in 2003.

The large rabbit-nosed whisker, an Australian species of marsupial, escapes the heat by retreating underground - literally Down under. These charismatic animals "can avoid extreme temperatures by digging complex tunnels and seeking refuge in them," John Wairnowski explained in an email. The biologist works at Charles Darwin University in Australia.

These spiral structures can be up to two meters deep and three meters long.


Another Australian species that is used to extreme heat is the night parakeet. The shy bird was considered locally extinct in Queensland until it was rediscovered in 2013, according to Wairnowski.

The ground dwellers are mainly nocturnal and stay during the day in their nests that they build in and on plants.
