African savanna

About
el habitat
The savannah brings together the largest concentration of large herbivores on the planet and its extensive plains are the scene of long migrations in search of water and food linked to the passage of the two seasons of this biome: the dry season and the wet season.

It represents arid areas dependent on seasonal rains in northern Kenya and Somalia, specifically the dry bed of a watercourse dotted with different species of acacias, typical trees of the African savanna, as we can find in the Samburu National Park.

It houses a breeding group of southern white rhinos, to a herd of zebras already a group of Ostriches living in the same space, observed by the marabou from their hill.

It represents the underground life of the savanna, playing an important ecological role since these burrows serve as shelter for numerous animals. All of them take advantage of these impressive constructions, even going so far as to coexist predators and prey. It illustrates the vital importance of the protection and conservation of all living beings and their habitats to maintain the balance of ecosystems.

It houses the oricteropus o aardvark that uses the powerful claws of its front legs to excavate the galleries that will form the burrow, to the family of hyenas, to the group of warthogs, to the long-eared foxes, to different species of rodents –porcupines, spiny mice, and naked mole rats – and reptiles like him nile monitor and seba python.

It represents one of the large African termite mounds that the oricteropus uses to obtain its favorite food, termites.

It houses the dwarf mongooses, the smallest carnivorous mammals in Africa, which take advantage of these abandoned termite mounds as a den, generating great activity around them.

It represents the large granite formations that dot the green savanna, that serve as shelter from fires and floods, and how resting place during great migrations of herbivores. Numerous species of animals and plants have been adapted to live in these ecosystems, as they present different environmental conditions from those of the sea of ​​grass that surrounds them, creating a microclimate that gives rise to a own zoological community.

It houses the rockjumper and the group of hyraxes, inhabitants par excellence of the kopjes since they climb their rounded rocks without problem. Also found here are striped mongooses, an example of a cooperative society where all the individuals in the group play an important role for its proper functioning. In a privileged position you can see the leones resting on these large rocks, using them as watchtowers from which to scan the horizon in search of their prey. And some birds They take advantage of their inaccessible surfaces to nest far from terrestrial predators.

It represents the large herbaceous meadows of the Serengeti and the Massai Mara associated with herbivore migrations.

It houses herds of herbivores grazing peacefully on the grass: giraffes, impalas, blesbok and waterbuck live here, along with birds like the jabiru, curious African stork, the grey-necked crowned crane and  sacred ibises. Sometimes, somewhat far from this busy meadow, we can find the dromedaries.

It represents a forest of one of the largest and most curious trees in Africa, the baobab, which appears to have grown upside down, with its roots facing the air.

It houses a herd of african savannah elephants. At more than 3 meters tall and weighing between 3.000 and 6.000 kg, it is the largest land mammal that exists. We also discover the nice ones meerkats and we observed that, right in front, a timid and immobile group of dik-dik He tries to go unnoticed behind some bushes.
