There are animals such as salamanders and desert rodents that come out at night to feed and mammals such as foxes, lynxes, hyenas, and wolves. 

Each of the animals that inhabit the deserts are classified according to the continent where they are found. Australia, for example, has kangaroos and coyotes; it also has the exotic spiny devil, a species of small lizard that eats ants. 

Desert tortoises come out in the mornings, but as reptiles also suffer from overheating, they must protect themselves from the sun in Africa, so they seek areas with some shade and humidity.
