What happens when joshua trees die?~Nature Notes~032411
Let's face it...joshua trees fall over and die. So, what becomes of them? They decay and support all kinds of life, from the decomposers to insects to reptiles. Centipedes, small lizards, snakes, spiders...all use the dead tree as homes. I leaned over and investigated these two that I found and didn't see anything in them, but it was late morning when we visited the park...I would love to get there very early in the morning OR arrive mid-afternoon and stay late in the day. I can't wait to return to the park! Nature Notes for March 24, 2011.
