Toktokkie beetle (Onymacris unguicularis)
These beetles survive on the sand dunes by collecting water from the nightly fogs on their backs and drinking it. The Namaqua chameleon (Chamaeleo namaquensis) and other reptiles eat the beetles.
Grass termites live on the dune grasses. The more typically African termite mounds only exist in woodland areas.
Welwitschia bug (Probergrothius sexpunctatus)
Several species of insects live on the welwitschia plants.
