Life Lines

Talk about unique adaptations. Here is a video showing how lungfish and desert frogs are able to survive for years outside of water during periods of drought. The video also shows how thorny devils living in harsh desert environments absorb water through their skin. These adaptations may come in handy with climate change.

    Take a look at this and google annual killifish. Because I studied them, I think they are neater than lungfish or frogs. No disrespect intended. I have had eggs go for two years before ready to hatch.
