Herbivores of the Prairie


Monarch Butterfly

White-Tailed Jack Rabbit

Environmental Adaptations:

  • To flee from predators they have developed:
  • large ears
  • long legs
  • To stop bugs from messing with them their tails are like a fly swatter.
  • They produce a chemical that gives their body a very bitter taste; which birds hate.

abiotic and biotic factors
Abiotic and Biotic Factors

Abiotic factors are non living things that affect living organisms. Examples of these in the prairies are holes, dirt, and rocks. These abiotic factors are used by living organisms as shelter.

Biotic factors are living organisms such as animals, plants, and trees. The biotic factors affect other living organisms because they can be used as food.

Decomposers of the Prairie

Decomposers breakdown dead things. If there were no decomposers dead things

would pile up everywhere. Examples of decomposers are fungi and mushrooms.
