A Savanna Food Chain
A Who-eats-what Adventure in AfricaBook - 2009
Describes food chains in the savanna, beginning with carnivores, such as a cheetah or a lion, and ending with decomposers.
Welcome to an African Savanna! As you walk through the tall grass, the Savanna seems flat and empty. But it is full of life, from a tortoise munching on some green leaves to a lion prowling for its next feast. Day and night on the savanna, the hunt is on to find food—and to avoid becoming someone else’s next meal. All living things are connected to one another in a food chain, from animal to animal, animal to plant, plant to insect, and insect to animal. What path will you take to follow the food chain through the forest? Will you … Race with a hunting cheetah? Graze with a hippo and her calf? Slither through the grass with an Egyptian cobra? Follow all three chains and many more on this who-eats-what adventure!
Gives readers an exciting glimpse into animals and their habitats while illuminating curriculum concepts related to food webs and biomes.
