The Desert of Kuneer is one of the five Southern Kingdoms. It is located right next to the Forest Kingdom of Tyto, where Soren and his family live. Both Gylfie and Digger were hatched here and this is also the place where Tavis and Cletus, brothers of Twilight, took refuge after the Pure Ones attacked Ambala . Later, Pure Ones started recruiting in Kuneer and drove all the owls living there away. St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls were snatching owlets and eating some too until they were destroyed in The Shattering. Also, many Burrowing Owls live here because they enjoy living in burrows.
It was first mentioned in The Capture, when Gylfie told Soren where she was from and how she was captured. It was eventually visited by Soren, Gylfie, Twilight, and Mrs. P to find Gylfie's parents. It was here where they first met Digger.
In the time of "The Legends of Ga'Hoole", Hoole lead a group of dire wolves into the desert to cull the hagsfiends that resided there. Hoole also had a premonition that the green eyes of the dire wolves could overpower the fyngrot of the hagsfiends. The undertaking was a success but Fengo, the chieftain of all the wolf clans, was killed.
As it is a desert, there will probably be a very hot climate.
