Animals of the Savanna

Join Read City USA's million-hour reading challenge, Tails and Tales, and journey with us to the savanna! Savannas occur where there's more rainfall than a desert might receive, but not enough to support a rainforest. Savannas are home to large herds of grazing animals and the predators that follow them. The savanna habitat can be found in the East African plains, the South American pampas, and the open woodlands of northern Australia. Animals found in savanna habitats include elephants, lions, giraffes, cheetahs, and zebras.

Craft
