AgaveThe Agave is a producer in the Big Bend Country and is usually found in clusters of its own kind. It uses photosynthesis as its food source and has adapted itself for protection and survival.

SotolSotol is a very common producer that is usually found in Big Bend Country. It uses photosynthesis as a food source and has adapted by changing its "leaves" shape for protection and survival purposes.

NolinaNolina is a producer that can be found in Big Bend Country. It uses photosynthesis to make its own food and it has adapted to its harsh environment by sprouting leaves similar to that of the sotol plant.

Black-Tailed JackrabbitThe black-tailed jackrabbit is a herbivoric consumer that can be found in Big Bend Country. Its diet consists of "soft" plants such as the agave plant. The reason for this is that the other plants shown below are too hard and difficult to consume.

SquirrelThe squirrel can be found in many places, including Big Bend Country. It is a herbivore that can consume hard and soft plants such as sotol. The reason that they are able to do this is because they have developed an adaptation that allows their paws' nails to scratch through the rough surface of the plant.

Cactus MouseThe cactus mouse can be found in Big Bend Country. It is a herbivore that mainly consumes cactus. Both species share a relationship, but only the mouse benefits. To the mouse, the cactus serves as food and shelter. Due to its size and adapted paws, a cactus mouse is able to eat and crawl under a cactus for protection.

Collared LizardThe collared lizard is an omnivore who usually consumes smaller animals such as mice. It also is able to consume plants due to its adaptaions similar to that of the great horned owls.
