Savanna

This is what a Savanna looks like

Consumers!

This is a Zebra. :)

The Grant’s Zebra adapts to the environment because it has black and white stripes that confuse its predator. And it protects itself by herding together.

This is a Nile Crocodile! :)

The Nile Croc digs dens to hide from danger or hot weather. They are camouflaged to the water so predators don’t see them.

This is a Koala Bear. :)

Koala Bears have a great sense of smell and can detect poisonous leaves just by sniffing them! And they have a ton of fur on their butt so they can sit on pointy branches and not feel a thing.

Producers!

This is a Gum Drop Eucalyptus.

Gum Drop Eucalyptus is the primary food for Koala Bears.

This is the Candleabra Tree.

The Candelabra Tree has a sticky latex layer on the outside of it that is poisonous and has spines so the predators won’t eat/mess with it

This is the Kangaroo Paw.

The kangaroo paw has tiny wooly hairs on its flowers. These wooly hairs help the kangaroo paw because when predators try to eat it, it tastes weird so they won’t eat it.

Impact That Humans Have On The Savanna

http://www.planetpatrol.info/savannah.html

The issue is that we are polluting the savanna and we are over hunting.

We should be concerned because we might make some of the savanna animals go extinct and also we only have so many savannas we can’t just throw them away like that. They need to be clean.

If we continue these actions the savanna will no longer be. The elephants and cheetahs and stuff will be extinct and the air will be dirty and the animals will not be able to breathe correctly which means they will more than likely die out.

This is occurring in the African savanna.
