Egypt is located on the territory under the influence of two climatic zones at once: tropical and subtropical. This causes a desert climate with fairly rare precipitation. The average annual air temperature is 25-30 degrees, while on hot summer days, the thermometer can be at around 50 degrees Celsius.
The fauna of Egypt is characterized by various types of foxes, crocodiles, camels, jerboas and other representatives of the local fauna. Widely developed bird world. All living creatures living in Egyptian territory are adapted for a long life without water.

The classic animal of Egypt is the camel. Like no other, it is adapted to long-term existence without water, and therefore it is widely distributed in the hot Egyptian semi-deserts. Camels are domesticated animals, as a large number of them are kept in households for transport purposes, as well as for milk production.
Camel can carry up to several people at the same time. It is perfectly adapted to the movement on the sands, for which it is greatly appreciated by the locals and is respectfully called the “ship of the desert”.
Most Egyptian animals are nocturnal. This means that during the day they hide in burrows or natural shelters, and go hunting only at night. This is partly due to the fact that at night the air temperature is much lower.
Cats are widely represented in Egypt. Once upon a time, even lions and cheetahs lived here. Now several types of cats permanently live here, including: wild, dune, reed cat and others.
Foxes are no less widely represented. The three most common species are Afghan, Sandy and Common.
