|My topic of the paper is how does the Kalahari Desert affect the land and people in the region on southern Africa? In this paper I will describe the climate of the Kalahari, the animals that live in the Kalahari, and how the Kalahari affects the animals.
In the Kalahari, thee climate is very arid. The Kalahari is covered in red sand and is like I said very arid. But, it is only arid in the southwest (which is really weird). Something else that is weird about the Kalahari Desert is that it is quite well vegetated. The Kalahari is without permanent surface water. Also, the Kalahari gets under 175mm of rain annually making it a fossil desert.
I am not going to name them all but some animals are Jackals Springboks, And Spotted Hyenas. Jackals are a carnivorous animal in the k9 dog family. A Springbok is a gazelle like antelope with gives them the ability to jump as high as 11ft and it is as long as 5ft. Also, it stands as high as 34cm. It weighs as much as 78lbs. Lastly, a Spotted Hyena is a large mammal belonging to the family Hyaenidae. It is about 6ft long including its 12in tail. That is about the some of the animals of Africa.
This paragraph is about how the climate affects the animals. One way it affects the animals by where they live. Also, it affects what they eat and drink. One other reason is it affects us because we eat and sometimes we eat other animals.
My thesis statement is how the climate of the Kalahari Desert affects Africa.
