Life in the desert
During the day, the desert seems like a lifeless place: animals hide where they can protect themselves from the heat.

Sometimes it rains in the desert. So, this one blooms, since there are many seeds in almost all deserts. But most of the plants that emerge will quickly wilt and die in the scorching sun..
