Website with great pictures
Climate: Very dry, little precipitation, hot days, cool nights
Consumers: Snakes, lizards, kangaroo rats, tortoises, jackrabbits, and camels.
Producers: Very few; cacti, saguaro, yucca. Plants store water and have very small leaves and thorns.
Extra facts: Animals active during day are called diurnal. Active at night called nocturnal. Very few large animals live in the desert because large amounts of food and water are hard to find. Different types of Deserts. Sahara vs. Arizona desert

Arizona Desert = Cacti, Joshua trees,
I do not want to see a picture of a cactus next to a camel they do not live in the same Desert!
