About This Quiz

On some level, you have to believe that in the nature vs. nurture debate, nature is getting an edge when it's absolutely brutal. Take the desert for instance. If you have to adapt to life in such a harsh climate, you're probably going to be a little more intense than those who grew up in cushy, temperate areas with plenty of water and shade, don't you think?  Surely the predators of the desert have shown that they can handle a more intense way of life than ones in the woods or the mountains.

With conditions as rough as they are in your average desert, you need to respect those predators and how they manage to survive. It's not just all the other creatures you need to worry about; it's nature itself.  There's just no easy days or nights when you live like that. And with that in mind, isn't it about time you figured out which of these hardcore desert predators suits you best? There's a fearsome, sandy critter deep in your soul just dying to get out. So why not answer a few questions about yourself and life in the driest places on earth and we'll tell you just which desert predator you truly are.
