Prairie animalsPosted on May 18, 2018 - Last modified: September 8, 2018
The prairie is a biome between a desert and wooded climate, called semi-arid because here the rains are not so common, but they are enough to have vegetation, predominantly bushes and grasses.
We can find grasslands all over the planet, there is practically a large meadow on every continent. We locate one in North and South America (Argentina), Australia, Africa or central Eurosia.
Types of grasslands
The grasslands can be classified into two types: temperate grasslands and tropical grasslands. The grasslands of the southern hemisphere are the ones that receive the most rainfall.
They receive an average of 25 to 75 centimeters of water throughout the year, therefore, their vegetation is scarce, measuring only a few millimeters in height.
They have two seasons of decline, one of lethargy where the grass does not grow due to low temperatures and the other of constant growth.
They are the meadows with more rainfall where they maintain a balanced climate throughout the year. They have two seasons, one dry and one rainy.
The African savannah is the best known, where the best-known prairie animals such as zebra, lions, rhinos, elephants, hyenas or giraffes live.
