There are four deserts in the U.S., the Chihuahuan Desert, Mohave Desert, Sonoran Desert and Great Basin Desert. Three out of the four are hot deserts; the Great Basin is considered a cool or cold desert and is the largest desert in the U.S. The Chihuahuan Desert is the largest desert in North America; the temperature is very hot in the summer and cool in the winter. You would see plants like the fishhook cactus, honey mosquiite, or prictkly bear cactus if you were at the Chihuahuan. The Mojave Desert lies between the Sonoran Desert and the Great Basin. The Mohave has many plant specie not found in the other adjoining deserts; the Mohave Yucca, Creosote Bush, Big Sagebrush, and Blackbush are common. The Sonoran Desert is the hottest of the four; moisture from the Pacific coast provides rain for plants and shrubs. Find photos and information of plants and wildlife in the Chihuahuan, Mohave, Sonoran, and Great Basin deserts.
