Dear student,     
Please find below the solution to the asked query                                                             

Most of the animals which live in soil do so by digging tunnels that are very extensive and contain many holes for entry and exit of air. When such entrances are not there, then the animal adapts itself by living in oxygen deficient environment under the soil.

Other animals such as earthworms and amphibians keep their skin moist and breathe through the skin under the ground.
