Why does quicksand have to be in water?

Quicksand is a soupy fluid made up of sand or earth and often water. It forms when something causes sand, earth, or clay to have reduced friction and fluid-like properties. Typically this something is water. The water in quicksand separates the individual particles and reduces the friction.

Is there quicksand in the United States?

Quicksand is found throughout the United States, particularly by the coast, but also inland on riverbanks, by lakes and other freshwater, and in marshes. It can be formed anywhere that hidden underground water escapes, saturating the soil above.
