The Sonoran Desert is a North American desert. It covers parts of America, as well as Mexico, and is over 100 thousand square miles.
It is a subtropical desert caused by the planetary atmospheric circulation, just like the Sahara desert.
Current surviving indigenous people on such region are from the Seri and Quechan (Yuman) tribes. On the Baja California Peninsula, some tribes now extinct included the Kiliwa,… Cochimi and Pericu tribes.
Most of them are carnivorous, eating small animals such as insects, rodents and other frogs; most of them are nocturnal to prevent dehydration and live underground.
The Sonoran Desert is an important because so many endangered animals and plants make their home their like, jaguars, ocelots, Pima Pineapple cactus, and the Lesser Long-nosed… bat.
Rattlesnakes, king snakes, gopher snakes, coral snakes, rat snakes, garter snakes and many others.
About 76,800,000 acres.
Yes it is.
Yes, the most common is the Stripe Tailed Scorpion but the desert is also known for the Giant Hairy Scorpion and the Bark Scorpion. All three of these scorpions have stingers …and claws but the Bark Scorpion is the only one to be considered life threatening. Their sting is painful and irritating but only life threatening to creatures under 40 lbs. The scorpion will almost always leave humans alone, it is only when we pick up a rock or piece of wood and remove them from their hiding place that they pinch or sting. If I'm going to pick something up in the desert I'm always sure to kick it before I pick it up just to make sure that any unwelcome guests clear out before I handle it.
If there are mules in the Sonoran Desert they are on ranches orfarms and not roaming wild.
