As a type of grassland biome, savannas receive more rain than a desert, but too little rain for trees to grow.  Fire and drought are common in the savanna.


The largest animals on earth live in the savanna biome including animals like elephants, giraffes, and bison. Grazing animals help to maintain a healthy grassland savanna.
