Wind and water make a mesa. It takes millions of years. The wind and water carve the rock. The softer part of the rock disappears first. The harder part forms a mesa. The hot sun beats down on it. A few plants grow on mesas. Flower open only at night. They protect themselves from the daytime sun. Only small animals live on mesas. Lizards and pack rats make their homes there.

From Houghton Mifflin text p. 97
