  • The plants of the tropical grasslands are very specific because they need to stand up to very long dry periods. Such as Shrubs, grass, and bushes.
  • They have long roots to reach deep into the ground.
  • Think bark to resists burns from fire.
  • The tree leaves also fall off in the winter to save water.
  • Grass grows from the bottom up so that the grazers do not damage the root

Adaptations (Plants)
  • The grasses have adaptations that keep animals from eating them
  • Some of the grass is sharp or bitter tasting for some animals, but not to others.
  • The benefit of this is that different animals have food to eat.
  • Different animals eat different parts of the plants.
  • (Grasslands Habitat)
  • There are thousands of organisms that live in the grasslands.
  • They all co-exist in that they eat at different times of the day.
  • Also they have preferences of what kind of food they like to eat.
  • There are 16 different herbivores in the grasslands.

  • Some of the carnivores are lions, leopards, cheetahs, jackals and hyenas.
  • Most of the animals can

go days without water.

  • These animals live here because they can survive

the long dry months.

Adaptations (Animals)
  • Most of the animals have long legs/wings so that they can make it on long migration routes.
  • Many burrow under ground to avoid the heat or raise their young.
  • The tropical grasslands are great for birds of prey like hawks. Since it is so open the birds can see their prey from miles away.

  • Animals don’t sweat so they don’t lose body heat.
  • Instead they have to lose it through panting or through large areas of skin like elephants ears.
