The saguaro (sa-WAH-ro) cactus is a plant that grows in the Sonoran desert. Its flowers bloom on only one night each year. The animals that come to see the saguaro cactus bloom include pollinating fruit bats, howling mice, rattlesnakes, and more. Join these creatures as they explore the desert landscape and wait for the one night each summer that the beautiful saguaro flowers can be seen in full bloom.
