Plants

Types of plants and how they adapted

There are millions of different types of plants in the Savannah from the sea to the mountains, but the main plants that grows in the grassland is grasses (who would guess). They adapted by being low to the ground and blades of grass sprout from the base of the plant. This means they can be stepped on without dyeing. Also there are these herbs called the milkweed. It has a white poisonous sap and can grow to 3 inches. The seeds have a silky tuft of hair with helps them be brought down like paper falling in the air
Another grass is the Big bluestem grass. They usually grown in large areas covered only by bluestem grasses. The grass has very deep roots so this keeps the wind that always blows in the grasslands from blowing the dirt away. Also there is the Purple Coneflower. This plant has had some anti-bacterial properties found in its extracts. It gets the immune system of the body going by using these things called Macro-phages.

How animals adapted

Many animals have adapted to the grassland biome to live a better life. Some animals like bison have big broad flat teeth. Most animals have front legs and paws so they can burrow into the grass. Some animals have adapted nocturnally (being active during life). The colors of most animals blend in with plant life so they have a better chance of survival

Extra information

Grass lands are considered a "transitional" biome. Meaning they are mostly found in between forests and deserts. If they got any more rain they would be considered a forest, if they got any less they would be a desert
