All abut the desert
The desert is a very hot.But most people don't know that the desert gets cold at night. And the desert does not get very much rain at all. If you ever go to the desert you will not see very much green. Big cacti store water in there big trunk. Cacti use their roots to protect them from the wind.If you see a cactus with prickles its just to protect the cacti from getting eaten by animals.
The prickles keep away animals from eating it.
these small plants have little or no leaves.So water does not get out.
it holds water in its big trunk.
animals in the desert
Animals in the desert usually store their water like a camel. water in the camel it will last the camel for almost a week then it needs to stop for water again. Humming birds peck the cacti and then they live in it.
