Flora and Fauna

The stereotype of the Kingdom as a dry, barren desert devoid of almost all flora and fauna is far from correct. Of course, both plants and animals have had to adapt to the rigors of the climate but, for those who look, there is a wealth of wildlife to be discovered, even in the desert regions - and there are parts of the Kingdom, notably the Southern Region, which enjoy ample rainfall and support a wide variety of crops as well as plants and animals.
