Animals in the African Savanna
Egyptian mongooses live in shrub thickets, rocky areas, and small woodlands and forested areas within the savanna. These mammals prefer to live in forested areas near water. All mongooses are known for being talented snake killers. They are carnivores and can also eat fruit.
African elephants, also known as the savanna elephants, are the largest land mammal in the world. They weigh up to 10,000 pounds and grow to 12 feet tall. They have a long trunk that is very flexible and has nostrils on the end. It is used to pick up food and water and carry it to it's mouth. On the sides of its mouth there are two long teeth that extend out from inside its mouth. These are called tusks, and are made of ivory. They have thick, gray skin on their bodies that protects them from deadly predator bites. They are herbivores, and feed on grasses, fruits, tree leaves, bark, shrubs, and vines.
The Black Mamba is the most deadly snake in the world. They grow 14 feet in length, and can travel at speeds of up to 12 mph. They have a head shaped like a coffin. The Black Mamba is not actually black. It gets its name from the color of the lining of its mouth, which is purple-black, and which it displays when threatened. They feed on small mammals and birds, like voles, rats, squirrels, mice, rats, or bush babies.
Weather and climate comditions in the African Savanna
The climate is hot year round in the African Savanna. The weather average is 68-86F. The weather does not change a lot. It is usually cooler in the dry season by a few degrees. I would bring shorts and a T-shirt you may want to bring a light jacket. You might also want to bring some sunscreen or a hat. The best time to come to the African Savanna is September, October, March, or April.
