10 incredible desert animals that can take the heat
These awesome animals inhabit Israel's most arid environments, from the Judean Desert to the Negev.
The agile ibex
The Nubian ibex (Capra nubiana) can be found near springs of the Negev and Judean deserts, but its range covers much of Northern Africa and the Middle East. Though it must drink water, it can survive on sparse desert vegetation. The ibex's light coat keeps it cool as it hops from rock to rock with impressive acrobatics.
