What would be an example of a food chain in the desert?
Brittlebrush ––> Wood Rat ––> Rattlesnake ––> Red-Tailed Hawk
The brittlebrush, a fragrant shrub, is a producer. It is eaten by the wood rat, a long-tailed pack rodent. The rat is eaten by a rattlesnake, such as the Western Diamondback. The serpent is eaten by the Red-Tailed Hawk, a common and colourful bird.
