I just googled desert animals, there's cool looking scorpions and lizards all over the desert. :D

my advice on desert basing is to stay away from a true sand dune desert like the sahara, where you just fill the base with appropriately coloured sand and say its done. Rather keep to a badlands kind of desert like the Mojave. You can use the self same sand on the bases, but you can also put a few rocks and tufts of grass on it too, makes for a much more visually striking effect.

Despite not being a Plog, I think this thread will get quite some useful responses in the Xenos Logs section - in contrast to WHF General. ;)

I one day in the far far future, plan on doing something like this. Maybe a richer green on the skin, and darker shade on the plates. But kind of desert, with some contrast colour.
