Grassland animals' adaptations include using various ways to protect themselves from predators and find water when there is little available. Since grasslands get 15-36 inches of rain each year, they are considered dry.
Since foliage contains the maximum amount of water at night, antelopes eat it then. Black rhinoceros eat leaves that are shielded from water loss. To find an underground water source, elephants dig deep into the earth. A baboon's alarm call warns its herd of approaching predators. To hear this call, zebras and antelopes feed near a baboon. Zebras live in herds for survival. The stripes of many zebras bewilder their predators. A prairie dog is able to blend itself well with its environment because of its coloring.
