- from Deserts
Many different kinds of deserts dot the vast continent of Asia.
The Gobi is a cold gravel-and-rock desert with snowy winters and temperatures as low as –40°F. Camels that live there have thick hair and two humps. The scorching hot Arabian Desert is the sandiest desert in the world – about one-third of it is sand. It has a lot of oil underground. Parts of the Negev, a rocky, mountainous desert, have been turned into a green land of trees by good planting, farming, and irrigation techniques.
