example introduction
Example Introduction:

Saguaros are common cacti mainly found in Arizona. They may live for more than 150 years, while growing 13.8 meters (45.3 ft) tall, with a girth of 3.1 meters (10 ft). All Saguaros differ in size and in the number of arms they have. Saguaros have adapted to limited rainfall and thrive in this arid region. If one were to view a Saguaro in late spring you might find them blooming gorgeous flowers and plumpy fruit.

Example

Saguaro cacti often times grow arms, while each cacti can vary in the number of arms they have. The arms of a saguaro take 75 years to develop. The arms are grown to develop reproductive capacity. The number of arms observed to be found on a saguaro is dependent upon rain patterns. The greater amounts of rain in the area, the greater number of arms will be observed on the cacti.

The saguaro cactus is a fascinating and beautiful plant. However, if you ever find yourself in the desert feeling very thirsty, you just might have a resource to find a drink. Just be careful, with the size of those large cacti, it sure would hurt if it fell on you. How much do those things weigh anyway?
