How the Desert tortoise adapts to the Desert

                                                                                             How the Desert tortoise adapts to the Desert

Adaption is when a living creature changes or adjusts from thick fur to storing water in a particular way to suit its environment. It can br. A desert is quite a unique habitat. It is an environment that doesn’t get a lot of water. Because of that problem  animals have to adapt to live. One the animals that have adapted is called the Desert Tortoise.

A desert is a biome with very less water so thats makes not much living things  there. Also because of less water it is flaming with hotness and is very humid. Most deserts are filled with sand. Animals that live in deserts have learned how to adapt.

A Desert tortoise is an animal that lives in the desert. It lives in the United States desert. It has a sturdy shell and has the ability to put its body inside the shell to hide from predators. It survives by burrowing in the sand. By burrowing in the sand it makes water.

In conclusion the desert is a humid biome with hard temperture to survive. The tortoise is a mammal that lives in a dessert. That's it by

The Gingerbread Bang

The Gingerbread Bang
One day a poor baker decided to make a treat for her husband for all the work he’d been doing. She decided to make a gingerbread man and something manly like a gingerbread gun and gingerbread bullets. She lined the white frosting on the gingerbread man face, buttons and outline.  Then she put three m&ms on the buttons. She put the gingerbread man on a steel baking tray and  then put it in the oven. Her husband came in inside, he smelled something scrumptious baking so he asked “ what are you baking it smells delicious” “I'm making you a treat, a gingerbread man and a gingerbread gun with gingerbread bullets. “Oh it looks like it's ready” she replied. She went to open the oven then all of a sudden the Gingerbread man jumped up and grabbed the gingerbread gun and bullets. He started to run away. The bakers chased after the Gingerbread man. “Run run as fast as you can you can't catch me the gingerbread man” A girl and a boy saw The Gingerbread Man running and they decided to go and  catch him. “Run run as fast as you can you can't catch me The Gingerbread man” he repeated. Cows saw The Gingerbread man running so they decided to chase him to. Soon a lake came up and The Gingerbread Man can't go in water. The Gingerbread man was getting worried. Then a kenning fox came and said “Would you like to ride me across the lake?’’  “Okay’’ he replied  He jumped on the fox’s tail. Right after that the fox started swimming across the lake he was going deeper and deeper. He said “Why don't you go on my back so you won't get wet?’’ The Gingerbread Man went on his back. The fox went deeper and deeper. He said “Why don't you go on my head?” The Gingerbread Man went on his head. They had nearly crossed the lake but the fox cept going deeper and deeper. He said “Why don't you go on my nose?” So The Gingerbread man went on his nose. Now they had crossed the lake. The fox licked its lips. He tossed The Gingerbread Man up in the air and opened his mouth. The Gingerbread Man got out his gun and one bullet. He loaded his gun and BANG! He shot the fox and he lived happily ever after.
