# How does the sand fox adapt the Sahara desert?

The sand fox is nocturnal so it operates during the cool portion of the day rather than traveling in the scorching sun. It has developed large ears to improve its ability to cool itself as canine animals don't sweat like we do. and it burrows underground to keep it cool when it is sleeping. They fav…our flat or undulating terrain where there is little vegetation, they avoid areas where there is not very much food, like bare sand dunes. They have quite a wide range of survivability in regards to temperature which ranges from anything from -5Â°C to 126Â°C however during extreme conditions they will normally retreat back to their burrows. Most of their water comes from their prey so they normally don't drink additional water as they can survive months merely from the water aquired from their food. However if water is available they will drink it. They have very large auditory bullae which will enhance the cats hearing to help it to pick up the vibrations in the sand, as well as this their ears are widely spaced and can be flattend horrizontally or pointed down to aid their hunting further. Small rodents are their primary prey, with records from Africa including including Spiny Mice (Acomys spp), Jirds ( Meriones spp), Gerbils ( Gerbillus spp), and Jerboas ( Jaculus spp. and Allactaga tetradactyla ), but also young of Cape Hare ( Lepus capensis ). They have also been observed to hunt small birds like Greater Hoopoe Lark ( Alaemon alaudipes ), Desert Lark ( Ammomanes deserti ), and consume reptiles such as Desert Monitor ( Varanus griseus ), Fringe-toed lizards ( Acanthodactylus spp.), Sandfish ( Scincus scincus ), Short-fingered Gecko ( Stenodactylus spp.), Horned and Sand vipers of the genus Cerastes , and insects (De Smet 1988, Abbadi 1993, Dragesco-JoffÃ© 1993, Sliwa in press). Sand-dwelling rodents made up the majority (65-88%) of stomach contents from carcasses collected in Turkmenistan and Uzebekistan in the 1960s (Schaenberg 1974). In Arabia the sand cat's distribution coincides with that of Sand Skinks and Arabian toad-head lizards; both reptiles are thought to be an important source of food for the cat [1] [1] http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/8541/0 (MORE)

# How deep will 9 cubic yards of sand fill a 1000 square foot space?

A little less than 3" deep..
A cubic yard is 3ftx3ftx3ft or 27ft3..
You have 9 cubic yards or 9*27ft3 = 243ft3..
If you divide 243 ft3 by 1000ft2 you get 0.243 ft. Multiply by 12 to covert to inches and your answer is 2.9" deep.

0.74 cubic yards spread at 4 inches (1/9 of a yard) means 0.74 divided by (1/9) = 6.66 square yards, so the answer will depend on how wide the path is. So now you would have to divide 6.66 by the width of the path. This is about 5.5 square metres. So on a path 2 feet wide is would spread 9.99 yards…, or 6.66 yards if 3 feet or a yard wide. (MORE)

# Will three yards of sand cover 54 sq feet 16 inches deep?

If the question refers to 3 cubic yards of sand then all measurements need to be converted to a common unit for the calculation to be made. Let the chosen unit be feet. 1 cubic yard = 3 x 3 x 3 = 27 cu ft : 3 cubic yards = 3 x 27 = 81 cu ft. 12 inches = 1 foot : 16 inches = 16 / 12 = 1.333 feet.… Volume of sand required = Area x depth = 54 x 1.333 = 72 cu ft. The amount of sand will easily fill the space - leaving 9 cu ft = 1 / 3 cu yard as surplus. (MORE)

# Can you give me a BIG paragraph about the sand storm in the Sahara desert?

A dust storm or sand storm is ameteorological phenomenon common in aridand semi-arid regions. Dust storms arise when a gust front or other strong wind blows loose sand and dirt from a dry surface. Particles are transported by saltation and suspension, a process that moves soil from one place and…deposits it in another. The Sahara and drylandsaround the Arabian peninsula are the main terrestrial sources of airborne dust, with some contributions from Iran, Pakistan and India into the Arabian Sea, and China's significant storms deposit dust in the Pacific. It has been argued that recently, poor management of the Earth's drylands, such as neglecting the fallow system, are increasing dust storms from desert margins and changing both the local and global climate, and also impacting local economies. [1] The term sandstorm is used most often in the context ofdesert sandstorms, especially in the Sahara, or places where sand is a more prevalent soil type than dirt or rock, when, in addition to fine particles obscuring visibility, a considerable amount of larger sand particles are blown closer to the surface. The term dust storm is more likely to be used when finer particles are blown long distances, especially when the dust storm affects urban areas.
