What To Expect
You can expect to see endless grass and a few trees. There are not many trees because of occasional fires and because of large mammals that roam the area. There are several different types of grasses including purple needlegrass and buffalo grass. There are also several flowers that you can see including asters and blazing stars. You can expect to see beautiful snow and ice in the winter. But if you come in the summer you will see the beautiful sun rise and set while lying down in the nice warm weather. Another thing to expect when you come to the temperate grasslands is about 25-30 in. of rain yearly. On occasion you can sit down and listen to the rain pour for a while. When you visit the temperate grassland, you will see Ungulates. They are large hoofed animals, the most commonly know ungulates that are found in the temperate grassland are Zebras, Bison, Rhinoceros, and Wild Hogs. You can expect to see some rolling hills and very small watering holes where animals go to drink and also just lots of flat plains and you will be surprised by the vastness of it.
