Grassland Savannah
by Dhara, Anna, Maddie and Caroline
There are a lot of herbivores in the grassland Savannah. It is ok
because there is a lot of long wavy grass. Only few trees cover
the land. Here are some of the animals that are herbivores:
Giraffes, African Elephants, zebras and there are even more.
African Elephant
There are many different types of carnivores in the grassland Savannah.
There are Lions, Hyenas and even cheetahs! Carnivores mean they eat
only meat no fruits no vegetables. Here is some pictures of the Animals
that are carnivores.
Omnivores are animals that eat both plants and meat so they are like
humans (if your not a vegetarian). There aren't that many animals in
the grassland savannah that are omnivores. Here are a few animals that
are omnivores : Jackals, Hyenas
One decomposer in the savannah is the hyena. Hyenas and other
decomposers play important roles in their environment. Hyenas
and other decomposers take the dead bodies of other organisms
and put them back into the environment. They eat the dead
bodies of other animals. They also help break down carcass's.
Some other decomposers in the savannah are beetles, termites,
and millepedes.
Where is grassland savanna located?
• Grassland savanna is located in many places, half of Africa is
savanna other places are: Australia, South America, and India.
• Give a description of the physical features of grassland savannas.
• A savanna is covered by scattered individual trees , mountains,
lots of grass for the animals to eat and its mostly flat land.
• How humans influence the
Environment in this biome.
Humans aren't to bad to grassland
Savannas but when tourist come
They force the animals to be seen and the animals get scared by all
the flashes of the cameras and the safari cars make noise.

The Climate is mostly warm and temperatures are
from 68 to 86 degrees. There is not many trees
to shade the animals.
Warm Climate
Abiotic factors often help plants in the Savannah. The
sunlight helps the plants grow by shining down on it. The
summer climate is also good for the plants because it is
wet. The water helps these plants grow. The soil is also
very helpful. It is porus. Porus means it is full of pores. The
soil also has a rapid drainage of water.
The plants in the savannah have to go through many
special adaptions. They have to adapt to the dry and humid
winter weather. They have to withstand not having to much
water and because of that most of the grass is dry and
coarse. The grass will mainly grow on flat areas. Plants
cannot grow in certain places of the savannah because it is
to dry or many other reasons. So you will mostly see that
the plants grow in little patches. The trees have to adapt to
the low rainfall but most don’t make it.
