The terrain of The Lost Desert is arid and the outskirts are nearly lifeless, with the exception of a few harmless bugs. The sun beats down without mercy. Shade and water are definitely precious commodities here, and even the harsh wind can burn the shrouds right off a mummified pepper. The Lost Desert can only be navigated slowly, which causes significant fatigue in the Neopets moving over them. While there have been recent plans to build roads through the desert, which will make travel a bit faster, the fatigue of the desert's hot sun is still a major factor. Strong, unpredictable winds are typical of The Lost Desert's weather system. These winds can blow for days on end, bringing with them vast amounts of dust, sand, and strange bugs, which cover everything in their path and reduce visibility close to nill. Particularly powerful sandstorms can be extremely unpleasant and dangerous for any Neopian caught in them. Dust whirlwinds also occur, hurling sand, dust, small Neopets, plants and Sutek muffins into the air. To the locals this is not such a bad thing, since they have cunningly used it to their advantage. Two words: seasoning sand. It's a great addition to any meal.
In The Lost Desert all life depends on the never-ending struggle to obtain and retain water. All Neopets and Petpets living in this area have evolved clever methods for maintaining adequate water supplies. For example, the Apis stores water in its hump and can go days without water; the Lyins live under the sand, searching for moisture; and the Desert Elephante can hold enough water in its trunk for three days. Luckily, there's a body of water right outside of the tall walls of Sakhmet City for the rest of the locals to take advantage of.
