Posted July 25, 2018 12:08:24 The desert sun can be a source of inspiration, especially when it’s not a blustery day and there’s a chance the sun is shining, but there’s also a risk of dehydration.
The desert is famous for being hot, but it’s the heat that can make the desert a source for dehydration.
As temperatures drop in the summer months, it can be difficult for animals to survive.
Some species of desert bird have evolved a natural defence mechanism.
In order to stay cool, some desert birds have evolved the ability to turn their feathers into a protective shield that allows them to remain cool under the desert’s heat.
It’s also common for desert birds to build nests from a combination of sand, rocks and other materials.
The Desert Institute of Technology (DIT) has developed a technique for creating artificial nests from the materials.
It uses carbon nanotubes to form the nest.
The technique could lead to the creation of artificial nests that can withstand temperatures of up to 4,000 degrees Celsius (8,500 degrees Fahrenheit).
It is also possible that the technology could be applied to make artificial nests in a range of other environments, including underwater.
The DIT is part of the University of Queensland’s Desert Research Program.
It has been developed by researchers from the DIT and the University in Cairns.
The team says the process of making the nests is “fast, easy and affordable”.
The team will start to test the nests this year, and they will be able to make nests in the future.
