This is a prime example of your average Savanna. It is centered around a large watering hole. It is ringed with clay soil, fading to grasses and small arboreal vegetation.

Climate

The Savanna has a wet/dry climate. The wet climate refers to a tropical season while the dry climate refers to the winter season. The wet season all of the plants shrivel up and die. The temperature during this time is between 78-86 degrees Fahrenheit. During the dry season this is considered to be the time when the plants start to grow. It is when most of the rain happens allowing the rivers to flow and the plant life to increase. The temperature during this time is 68-78 Fahrenheit. The temperature in the savanna does not drastically change it tends to stay at a constant.

Location

Savannas are mostly located in Africa, Australia, South America, and India. This is because a Savanna is mostly grass and a few scattered trees.

Flora

Fauna
