Summary This is the story of the life cycle and ecosystem of the giant saguaro cactus and the animals it helps to support in the desert. LeVar explains the life and seasons of the desert. Inhabitants including jack rabbits, bobcats, gila monsters, a javelina pig and woodpeckers are a few that this segment features. He explores how cacti adapt to the heat and scarcity of water, and explains the appropriate dress for people in a hot, dry climate. A "snake man" gives a close-up look at rattlesnakes.
