Plants in grasslands

Some plants that are in the grasslands are big shrubs, tall grass, and different types of grass including needle grass, wild oats, foxtail and buffalo grass. All the plants are for the animals to eat so they can survive in then grasslands.

Animals in grasslands

The animals in the grasslands are coyotes, snakes, prairie dogs, armadillos, owls, and foxes. Some of the animals such as the prairie dogs and armadillos as well as bugs, eat the grass so they have energy and the animals like snakes and coyotes eat those animals so they can survive.

Climate

The climate in the grasslands is usually very hot there and dry. But annually there is 28 inches of rainfall with cool and breezy nights there with hot and dry days.

Why should you go there?

You should come to the grasslands because the nights there are perfect temperature breezy winds and there is a lot of wildlife there and most of them are not predators.
