In many places around Las Vegas, you will see various desert plants and wildlife depicted in both the centre and sides of the roads. Some are rusted Prickly Pear cacti like this one, others are different cacti or animals such as Coyote and Road Runners. I have also seen Saguaro cacti and actual dead tree trunks dressed up so to say to represent the wild desert. Love it! Saguaro cacti and palm trees are not native to Las Vegas.
