What is a savannah?
A savannah is a type of grassland.
The trees in the savannah are spaced out and sunlight is readily able to reach the Earth (unlike a forest).
Savannahs generally have seasonal water availability- hence many animals in the savannah regularly migrate to areas where water will be abundant.
Savannah makes up approximately 20% of the Earth’s surface with the largest Savannah being on the continent of Africa.
Different types of savannah exist around our planet. These include temperate savannahs such as the ones found in the great plains of the United States, and Mediterranean savannahs that are characterized by mild, rainy winters and hot, dry summers, such as the Oak Tree savannahs of California.
