Tropical Savannah

Biology Biome


The Tropical Savannah has two very different seasons that it goes through. The seasons are the wet season and the dry season.

The wet season is during the the summer time. It's very humid and rainy, and the temperature ranges from 68 to 86 degrees F and an average rainfall of 30-50 inches per year.

The dry seasons is during the winter time.







The acacia tree is a plant on the savannah it has an umbrella shape, with branches and leaves high off the ground. It's heavily covered by grasses such as Rhodes, Red Oats, Star and Lemon grasses and some shrubs.


The Baobab trees store water between the bark and meat of the tree. The elephant's physical strength allows them to tear open the trunk and suck the water from it.

The animals migrate to other places in search of water until the rainy season begins again.


Many of the animals are in danger of extinction due to poaching (illegal hunting). The lands are being overgrazed and the savannah is not able to recover. The lands are being torn up for commercial farming.

Limiting Factors

Abiotic: warm temperatures, seasonal rainfall, hard soil, and frequent fire set by lightning

Biotic: drought, and vegetations that is dominated by different types of tall grasses.


The predators are the big animals such as the cheetah, lions, and hyenahs. The prey would but giraffes, gazelles, baboons, zebras, and wildebeasts.

There is a lot of competition on the Savannah because there are a limited amount of resources.
