African Savanna Food Chain


The Baobab is a tree which grows in the African Savanna. The maximum width and length of the Baobab are 25 meters. The Baobab has short branches and the bark is redish brown. The Baobab can live up to 3,000 years, and can resist drought, fire, and termites. The water it holds in it's trunk allows it to resist drought.

The Baobab tree is mainly used by humans as food and timber. The trunk of Baobab tree holds not only a large amount of water but also chunks of fruit that can be eaten. Since the wood of the Baobab tree is very resistant it is often used as timber.

The African Lions, live in Africa (DUH), mainly in Central Africa. The African Lion actually gets half of it's diet from carrion, dead animals already killed by something else such as Hyenas. Female Lions are the hunters and hunt as a group. Lions are mostly nocturnal sleep at day and hunt at night. Male lions have a mane and female lions don't which makes it very easy to distinguish between the two at an adult age. African Lions are at the top of the food chain and have very few natural competitors, mainly Hyenas.
