Animals adaptation to the Savanna The African Elephant adapt to the savanna by operating their tusks and trunk to keep them alive. In addition to them using their ears in the dry season by flapping it and keeping that area safe.The Zebra adapt to the savanna by forming into a group which makes them stronger. As well as they run 40 mph which is pretty fast. In addition to having their stripe to recognize their self's. The Giraffe adapts to the savanna by applying their long necks to eat the leaves of the savannas trees. Plus Giraffes use their necks to see predators from long distances. Giraffes can go with a long period without drinking water which is good for when dry season comes.The hyena adapts to the savanna by eating dead animal corpses. It does this because its not brave. Also because it can have eating problems.The Koala adapts to the savanna by using it sharp edged claw to reach the top of the tree where it would hide away from their predators. They mostly sit on comfortably on the tree because of their thick padded toes.

Human activities in the SavannaThere are many tribes that live in the African savanna one of them is called Masai. This happens because the tribe has always lived there. This is a good thing because they are following their tradition.In the Australian savanna there are many cattle farming. Its in the savanna because it has suitable climate. This Is a good thing because cattle have good meat and produce milk. Another human activity is hunting which is only allowed in specific areas. This is because if the hunter hunt the species in the savanna. I think they hunt in the savanna because many animals can be found. This is bad because hunter kill animals and may get a species extinct.
