Savannas can be found in Africa, Australia, Asia, and South America.
Savannas are full of large animals such as rhinos, elephants, zebras, giraffes, antelopes, and more.
Savannas have different kinds of plants such as Bermuda grass, elephant grass, jackalberry trees whistling thorns, and others.
Lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas are some of the predators live in savannas. Due to the dry climate, fires extremely limit the number of trees.
