Did you know that there have been temperatures recorded in the upper 140 degree mark in the desert? Because it is so hot there, many people might have the mistaken belief that there isn’t much in the desert. That is probably because many people perceive the desert to be just endless miles of sand.

With that understanding in mind, this quick picture review quiz is going to point out some of those thriving elements that can be found in the desert.
