Animals
Animals

  • Grasslands have very little protection from predators and a ton of grass to eat. So the grasslands are mostly dominated by herbivore grazers.

  • Bison, antelope, prairie dogs, coyotes, lynx, falcons, fox, gophers, and horses


Plants
Plants

  • Milkweeds, buffalo grass, ryegrass, foxtail grass, purple needlegrass, wild indigos, clovers, sunflowers, goldenrods, blazing stars, and asters.

  • Grasslands have very little trees; and if they do, it is very rare because most are easily destroyed in wild fires.
