Interesting Facts

  • Grasslands are considered the "transitional" biome. This means that grasslands are usually found between the desert and the forest. It would become a forest if grasslands received more rain. If it received any less rain, it would be a desert. 
  • True prairies and grasslands are becoming harder and harder to find. People are taming the wild lands, and the grasslands are becoming as extinct as the animals that are missing from them today.
  • In Africa, national parks are being set up to preserve the grasslands. This will help the animals such as lions and elephants as well.
  • The United States is starting to perserve the wild grasslands, too.  It is even replanting grass where it has been cleared for farming.
