The planet Sarapin is a high-temperature planet located in the Sarapin system that is part of the Humbarine sector of space. The intense heat that exists on the planet Sarapin causes the planet to support no lifeforms. That does not mean that the planet is a lifeless rock, however. Over the course of Sarapin's history, there is a particular species of tree that has evolved that can withstand the harsh temperatures that the planet is home to. Once the tree has gotten past the hurdle that is presented by the heat, it is passed another: lack of moisture. The climate that is present on Sarapin is so hot in fact that the amount of moisture on the surface is so small that it is sometimes overlooked. Contrary to belief however there is moisture on the planet and even to the extent of providing daily rain. The only problem is that none of this daily rain ever reaches the surface of the planet. The rainstorms that are present on the planet all take place in the upper levels of the atmosphere. While the rain is abundant here the intense heat of the planet causes it to evaporate here and never have a real chance to reach the surface of the planet. The trees of Sarapin have found a way to combat and defeat this roadblock: immense height. The trees grow to the point that their tops actually reach into the upper levels of the atmosphere. The tops of the trees not only absorb a large portion of the necessary water supply that the tree needs. The remaining level of water that is needed still needs to find a way to reach the roots of the tree, however. Again the trees of Sarapin have found an excellent solution to the problem. The leaves of the tree are incredibly broad and their bases actually point down and toward the trunk of the tree. This allows any rainwater that is too much for the leaves to directly absorb to be funneled to the trunk of the tree and then gravity pulls it to the base. Even with all of these adaptations that the tree has developed, it is still a rarity for a tree to reach adulthood due to the harsh conditions that they experience.
