These Animals Conquering the Hottest Temperature on Earth

These Animals Conquering the Hottest Temperature on Earth


When we feel hot inside the house, turning on the air conditioner is the best way to cool the body. But what about the animals out there?
Unlike humans, animals can not "dodge" from the whipping weather. However, some animals have a normal toughness, where they can survive, even grow and develop in hot places.
Here are five "tough" animals that live in some of the hottest places on Earth.

 

Pupfish


Many of the small fish -fish species found in fresh or brackish waters-found in America and the Caribbean can survive and are adaptable. "If you give them fresh water or salt water, they will stay okay," says Evan Carson, a biologist at the University of New Mexico.
Carson said, some pupfish can be considered extremophiles, ie animals that have a high tolerance to extreme conditions. Pupfish Ash Meadows Amaragosa likes the heat in Death Valley National Park, where the springs can reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit. However, that is not how compared to hot springs in the Mexican Chihuahua Desert.
The El Pandeño hot spring, for example, is home to the Julimes pupfish, which has 114 degrees Fahrenheit water. Meanwhile, a large head pupfish lives in Baños de San Diego at 111 Fahrenheit.

Wild Donkey


Temperatures in Dallol - a steamy area in northern Ethiopia - often reach 120 degrees Fahreheit in the summer, averaging about 93 degrees. In this area, about 400 Somalians and Africans are threatened with extinction, while the so-called donkey is able to survive there.
The donkeys beat the heat with a flexible metabolism, wide and moving ears, efficient walking, and the ability to drink lots of water quickly.
These characteristics help the donkeys not to need more water like cattle, like sheep and goats, according to Fiona Marshall-anthropologist at Washington University, St. Louis-via email.

 

Change Rüppell


One of the hottest places on Earth is Lut Desert in Iran. In 2005, NASA recorded Lut temperature of 159.3 Fahrenheit-the highest surface temperature in history.
However, one of these animals has evolved to conquer the hot malignant Lut. Rüppell's fox is able to overcome the heat of the Iranian sand by saving water in the body.
They hunt their prey quietly at night and avoid losing their precious moisture. In a calm way that, they are able to save water obtained from the body of the prey.
In addition to its ability to conserve water, its small body also helps to remove heat. Its low metabolic rate helps conserve energy, along with concentrated urine that reduces the amount of water from the body.

 

Greater Bilby


Australia is known as a place to have fun and sunbathe. However, NASA-operated satellites recorded temperatures as high as 157 degrees Fahrenheit in barren land in Queensland, 2003 ago.
Greater bilby-marsupials that live on the ground-are able to counteract the heat by taking shelter under the ground. "This charismatic animal can avoid extreme heat through development and protection in a complicated burrow system," said John Wairnowski, a biologist at Charles Darwin University in Australia, via email.
Wairnowski added, this spiral hole can reach a depth of nearly seven feet and has a length of 10 feet.

 

Parrot Night Bird


Another Australian species that is heat resistant is the night parrot. According to Wairnowski, this shy species is considered extinct in Queensland, until its discovery back in 2013.
The land-based birds remain calm when hit by high temperatures, with "strolling" at night and perched on plants during the day. Some people say, this species is similar to the owls that come out at night, and stay silent during the day.
