Sahara Desert Food Chain
The source of energy for the food chain is the sun. It enables numerous plants to flourish in this inhospitable environment. The plants are eaten by animals who in turn are eaten by larger animals. These animal's waste provides nutrients for the plants. As others animals die, remaining animals will sometimes feed on their carcasses.
