Tropical savannas are vast grasslands dotted with trees, which spread across Africa, northern Australia, and parts of South America and India.
With wide open spaces and so much grass to graze on, savannas are home to large herds of plant-eating animals (herbivores). They are also usually home to large predators that stalk the herds. In the African savanna, the plant-eaters include zebras, antelopes, wildebeest, giraffes, elephants, and rhinos. Predators include lions, leopards, cheetahs, and hyenas. In the Australian savanna, kangaroos are the primary plant-eaters.
