A savanna is a rolling grassland scattered with shrubs and isolated trees, which can be found between a tropical rainforest and desert biome. Not enough rain falls on a savanna to support forests. Savannas are also known as tropical grasslands. They are found in a wide band on either side of the equator on the edges of tropical rainforests.
Something that is very interesting in the Savanna biomes is that the soil types are very diverse. Experts have found just about every type of soil in such biomes.
Savannas cover almost half of Africa and large areas of Australia, South
America and India.
