A slender stemmed plant with large palmate leaves found in arid desert areas where it takes on the predominant color of the surrounding landscape. The cup-shaped flower secretes nectar sought after by insects who are invited to tranquilly feed in swarms while the petals close in on them so offering protection. If menaced the shooki will thrust forth its flower heads releasing the swarm of insects, thus the two entities form a lethal symbiosis.
