Transcript of Limpopo, South Africa

Lamb stew is also very popular in South Africa.
Ways to get around
Limpopo, South Africa
This is one of the best grassland biomes you will go to.
In the summer months, October-March, the temperature averages around 80 degrees fahrenheit.
There are many animals in Limpopo, South Africa, but of the many here are a few, the Bontebok, the Cape Elephant Shrew, the African Wild Dog, the Southern Pale Chanting Goshawk, and finally the Table Mountain Ghost Frog.
South Africa has many plants such as the gerbera daisy, baleria genus, watsonia, oxalis, and the plombago auriculata.
Symbiotic Relationships
One example of a symbiotic relationship is the brown-headed cowbird and other birds in this region. This is parasitism because the brown-headed cowbird lays its eggs in other birds' nests tricking the other birds to take care of their eggs.
Ways to get around
You will drive to get to the airport. Once off the plane you will take a shuttle out from the airport to your hotel. Along with the shuttle other ways to get around are the public buses, donkey carts, and bikes.

Limpopo, South Africa
The average annual precipitation is 19.5 inches.
The wettest month is January and the driest is July.
The average wind speed is 7 miles per hour.
Another example is the cattle and the cattle egret. This relationship is commensalism because the cattle grazes the grass which causes the insects to fly out of the grass and the cattle egret can then eat the insects.
Predator-Prey Relationships
Of the many predator and prey relationships one of them is the cheetah, the predator, and the gazelle, the prey. The cheetah stalks the gazelles until he finds one he wants to chase, which may be a weaker one that is sick or injured. The cheetah chases the gazelle, attempting to kill and eat the gazelle.
More Predator-prey Relationships
Another predator-prey relationship is the African lion, the predator, and the zebra, the prey. The African lion stalks the zebras then picks a target and runs to chase it. Once the zebra is killed, the pack of lions come and eat the zebra.
South Africa Food Web
Limiting Factors
One limiting factor is illness and disease which changes the amount of animals in their carrying capacity.

Weather causes animals to compete for a shelter.

Fire is a limiting factor because when there is only rainfall in South Africa during 6 months that means that the other 6 months are dry which sometimes lead to fires and causes some carrying capacities to even out.

Legal hunting is good for the limiting factor because it makes the carrying capacity even.
Human Impact
Tourism is a good impact on the ecosystem because the money that tourists spend helps fund natural conservation reserves.
Illegal hunting for certain body parts like elephant tusks is bad for the ecosystem because it affects the carrying capacity, by decreasing the number of animals in that area.
Fossil fuels affect the ecosystem in a bad way because increased carbon dioxide changes the environment which affects the whole food chain.
Why the giant anteater is becoming endangered
The Giant Anteater is becoming extinct due to illegal hunting because their meat is popular. Another thing contributing to their extinction is destruction of their habitat. People are making farm lands where the giant anteaters live. There are approximately 5,000 giant anteaters left. People are putting giant anteaters in protective areas or zoos and breeding them to keep the species going. One organization to help Giant Anteaters is the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species.
Common Food in South Africa
The braised meat and porridge is a very common meal.
Another common meal is carrot achar.
Lamb stew is also very popular in South Africa.
