What Is an Example of a Food Chain in the Temperate Grassland Biome?

A food chain for the temperate grassland biome goes from grass to a mouse to a snake to a hawk, according to Woodlands Junior School. The grass is a producer, the mouse is a primary consumer, the snake acts as a secondary consumer, and the hawk is a tertiary consumer.

Another example of a food chain is grass to a prairie chicken to a coyote.

BioExpedition states grass offers plenty of food for herbivores, which in turn supplies a lot of food for carnivores. Temperate grasslands are located in North America, South America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Grasslands can harbor large herds of grazing mammals such as bison or zebra.
