ANIMALS OF THE SAHARA.

ANIMALS OF THE SAHARA. The domestic animals of the Sahara are camels, sheep, goats, horses, donkeys, cattle, and gazelles; antelopes, wolves, hyenas, ostriches, foxes, jackals, wild boars, and leopards are the game. Here, as elsewhere, says the Scottish Geographical Magazine, a harmony exists between the fauna and the soil. The camels, sheep, and reptiles have the yellowish hue of the sand. Again, the necessity of covering long distances in search of pasture has produced great length of limb even the sheep have longer legs than those in this country. Perhaps the most 4istinctive feature is the ability to go a long time without water which all the animals possess-the camel in a marked degree. He can travel six to ten days without water, feeding on the acacia and other thorny bushes, and at the end of this time can drink more than a hundred pints of water. The camel of the Sahara is the dromedary with one hump. To the natives this nnimal is indispensable; it carries them from place to place, and supplies them with meat and milk.
