Caption

Saguaro cactus (Carnegiea gigantea). This large cactus can live for over 250 years, reaching heights of over 15 metres. It is a succulent plant, capable of storing over 6000 kilograms of water. It possesses very shallow but wide- spreading roots, which can grow to cover an area over 25 metres in diameter. The saguaro cactus flowers in May and June, each flower lasting for only 24 hours. It is found only in the Sonoran Desert in the south-western USA and northern Mexico. Photographed in the Saguaro National Park, Arizona, USA.
