Nevada - Valley of Fire State Park:

Flora and Fauna

The area plant community is dominated by widely spaced creosote bush, burro bush, and brittle bush. Several cactus species, including beavertail and cholla, are also common. The springtime bloom of such plants and wildflowers as the desert mallow are often spectacular along park roads. Resident birds include the raven, house finch, sage sparrow, and road runner. Many migrant birds also pass through the park. Most desert animals are nocturnal and not frequently seen by the passing motorist. Many species of lizards and snakes are common in the park, as well as the coyote, kit fox, spotted skunk, black-tailed jackrabbit, and antelope ground squirrel. The desert tortoise is a rare species and protected by state law. Please leave this likeable and harmless creature to live its life in peace if you are lucky enough to come across one.
