Piece Done for CGMA Distant Worlds contest, I imagined a constant research for one of the most precious resources known to man: water.
In this planet plants and animals evolved to coexist with this climate peculiarity: a high temperature difference in a small height range.
Steam vents are all over the surface, but sometimes one of the pits turns into a pool of water, plants that grow in the pits adapted their leafs to catch steam droplets and animals have developed a long neck to reach those branches.
