Phoenix Zoo: Exploring Desert Animals

Animals depend on their surroundings to get what they need, including food, water, shelter, and a favorable temperature.

Animals depend on plants or other animals for food. They use their senses to find food and water, and they use their body parts to gather, catch, eat, and chew the food.
