The Sinai desert is the habitat for a variety of animals and plants.
Here live some species of mammals, birds, lizards and a variety of insects that you get to see otherwise rarely. The horror stories about scorpions should not be taken seriously. Actually there are very few poisonous animals here, such as the rare Horn Viper.
The plant world is remarkable. It's a great experience to see after a rain how everything begins to bloom within a few days.
