Flora and Fauna

Arikok National Park hosts a variety of habitats. The main eco-type is the xeric scrubland. Candelabra cactus are scattered across the landscape, along with thorny bushes. During the dry season many of the plants lose a portion and sometimes all foliage. Plants that keep foliage usually have other adaptations to maintain moisture and limit evaporation, for example thick leathery leaves.
