Cimarron National
Grassland By: Alyssa, Reiley, & Ethan _ Animals & Ecosystems Here are out individual reports
Reiley's Report Ethan's Report Alyssa's Report Bison Prairie Dogs Porcupines What Type of Environment is This? The environment is grasslands Where is it geographically? It's in the United States and it's in Kansas What is the climate like? The climate is warm and sunny. It changes throughout the year because in winter when it's cold the temperature drops. When it's in the summer it's warm and it gets really hot out. What are the main abiotic factors? The main abiotic factors are dirt
& oxygen. Dirt is important
because without dirt, plants
wouldn't be able to grow. Oxygen
is important because without
oxygen, the animals can't live. Also without carbon dioxide. Description- They have coats of sharp spines or quills that defend and camouflage them from predators. Porcupines come in different shades of brown, grey, and unusual white.

Lifespan- They live from 10 to 15 years

Offspring- They have about 1-4 offspring

Where it lives and food & predators- Porcupines live in tropical and temperate parts of Asia, Southern Europe, Africa, North Americana, and South America. Porcupines are herbivores. They eat grass, tree bark, leaves, stems, fruits, seeds, roots, berries, nuts, flowers, & pine needles. Some predators of porcupines are wolverines, pythons, eagles, great horned owls, & wolves. Description- The american bison are the largest buffalo in America. It was estimated that there is 30 million to 200 million roaming the Earth in the 1700s-1800s but since then the buffalo population as plummeted rapidly to about 1,300 american bison left.
Lifespan- The bison lifespan is 15 years in the wild and 25 years in captivity. Extra- America bison can jump 6 feet in the air. They can run 35-40 miles per hour.
Habitat and Food- Bison eat mainly grass and vegetation. Wolves, grizzly bears & humans. It's habitat is open plains, savannas & grasslands. Praire dogs only live for 3-54 years
they weigh 2-4 lbs
Head and body, 12 to 15 in (30 to 38 cm); tail, 3 to 4 in (8 to 10 cm)
They live in prairies and grasslands
They live in burrows them make that are underground
They have different quarters for nurseries, bathrooms, feeding room, and bedrooms.
They have 5-10 babies in a litter
These dogs live around the Great Plains from the bottom of Canada to the top of Mexico.
They mostly eat green leafy things, prairie plants, and insects.
In their colonies, they have about 500 prairie dogs.
They only come above ground in the day time to get food.
They mostly eat leafy things, insects, and plants.
Predators: coyotes, bobcats, badgers, black-footed ferrets, golden eagles, and prairie falcons.
The men usually watch over the burrows.
The woman nurse the babies, and the workers (men and women) also look for food for the colony. There are “teacher” that teach the kids how to find food, and how to maintain the burrow.
Abiotic factors: They soil can be too mushy and collapse, the ground can get really really cold and freeze, drought/flood, fire, air pollution fills their tiny lungs and kills them.
Human impact: Drilling for oil can make their habitat cave in, pollution can kill, big cities built over them can block their exit and they will die, and people collection their food, so they wont get any. Some people go hunting for prairie dogs. Human Impacts Two human impacts are......

Feeding the Wildlife
Adding Items Feeding The Wildlife
Sometimes humans feed the wildlife but some food that we feed the animals are not OK for them to eat Adding Items
Humans always add trails and make them paved and they add houses in the wildlife. Food web
