Desert sals are a species of sal that lives in the Deserta Vasta. Unlike their swamp-dwelling ancestors, desert sals are completly adapted to life in a harsh, arid enviroment.


Desert sals look like enormous beige salamanders.


Desert sals live in underground tunnels. Unlike the swamp sals, there is only one breeding female in a desert sal colony. This sal fills the role of a Queen.


To survive arid conditions, Desert sals have evolved a new trait. They have become reptiles.

The only difference between an amphibian and a reptile is that amphibians lay their eggs in water. Obviously, this is not the best trait to have in a desert. Reptiles, on the other hand, lay hard shelled eggs that can be a laid in the driest of places. And so, desert sals made this seemingly small evolutionary leap.
