Abiotic: Sand, Sunlight, water, air and temperature

Biotic: Scorpions, coyotes, snakes, spiders, lizard, cacti,and cheetah !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Notes: Someone else said that twigs are biotic. Twigs are not biotic. They are either part of an biotic factor, or abiotic fully (like if it fell off a tree). JK HEHEHEHE

Also here are the meanings of the two words:

Abiotic: Nonliving

water simply is Abiotic.

Biotic: Living

humans simply are biotic.
