The Savanna supports a wild variety of life. Whether they have long legs, or wings, live under ground or ubove. They all are important to all it's a food chain. You tack one out and they all fall apart.

The Savanna has a sort of wet/dry seasonThe dry season is winter and the warm is summer. So in the dry season lots of plants shrival up and die and some rivers dry up to. Most animals have no food and are forced to migrate. In the wet season every thing grows back fast and and the rivers are full.all the animals migrate back.

In the dry season the savanna gets only 4 in. of rain! well you may think the savanna is dry but in the spring it gets about 15 to 25 inches of rain from monsoons
