Interesting Nature Facts #35 – Moab Desert

by | Sep 11, 2018

The Moab Desert in eastern Utah has a very interesting history and ecosystem. The human history can be traced back over 10,000 years, and the first signs of humans appeared as signs carved into indigenous rock formations found in several places. Hundreds of species of wildlife live here, including the cottontail rabbit, mule deer, and a host of reptiles, and because of the extreme heat for most of the year combined with an average of nine inches of rainfall per year, it’s no wonder nearly all of the wildlife is nocturnal.
