My Favorite Biome

My favorite Biome is the Savannah.

Shape: Rolling Grasslands
Vegetation: Shrubs and Isolated Trees
Seasons: Two; one long and dry, the other short and wet

The savannah is characterised by it's two major seasons. The dry season is cooler (70 degrees) but both seasons are relatively neutral temperature-wise. The main deal is the precipitation. In the dry season a savannah would be lucky to get 6 inches of rain, while in the short summer it can usually expect somewhere between 15 to 25 inches of rain.
