The desert spans a large distance. There is little to no plant life, though an occasional plant can be found. Sand dunes are commonly found in the desert, and some of them, known as booming sand dunes, can make a noise if jumped upon. Due to harsh conditions and high wind, sandstorms can happen. The desert does not have many known residents, though jerboas such as Tupp do happen to live there.
