Yep, there are bears in the desert... along the big rivers which are their own little environment. I've seen bear footprints in the mud on Deso. There are seagulls and shorebirds in the desert too....along the rivers.
My biggest critter worry on desert floats is mountain lions, especially with small children in camp.
Mountain lions are probably too fast and too good at ambushing for a gun to do much good... but on long floats I'm packing a hand-cannon anyways.
