Bison grazing


Temperate grasslands have a lot of plants(a few hundred species). They have a lot of plants because the soil is deep and dark, and the rotted roots help hold the plants and the soil to the ground so they can grow and gives the plants a food source. Some of the plants in the grasslands are sunflowers, wild flowers, cotton, oaks, and willow trees. Most of the plants in the grassland is grass! There are many types of grasses like foxtail grass that is a spikelet or spikelet cluster of grass. Wild oats are a type of grass that usually gets chopped down for hay. Trees in the grassland can't really grow because of the lack of moisture, and crops and flowers can't grow because of relatively rapid decamposition but they still some flowers and crops can grow.


The temperate grassland has a lot of animals. Some of the animals that live in the grasslands are elephants, bison, deer, and more. The grasslands herbivores mainly feed on grass, and flowers. The carnivores mainly feed on meat, and other animals. The bison are herbivores. They mainly feed on grass, and plants. They live in the grasslands and mainly live in fear because they are prey to other animals. The elephant is also a herbivore. They also feed on grass and plants like the bison and live in the same habitats but baby elephants are prey to some animals and the adults are not prey. Wolves are carnivores. They feed on animal meat and flesh. Wolves are predators and hunt other animals. Deer are herbivores like the bison and the elephant. Deer are mailed hunted by all carnivores. Deer are prey so they mainly get eaten by the carnivores in the grasslands.
