All About the Desert
The desert does not get much rain. It gets cold at night. Many plants do not have leaves. Most animals come out at night. Cacti hold water inside their trunks.
The prickles keep animals from eating them.
Keeps the water inside.
Small with little or no leaves
These types of plants have little or no leaves so that they do not let water escape.
