In this website there is also a section for savanna animals. The savanna is a unique
ecosystem that receives more rain than a desert but receives it in large amounts and

At The Animal Spot we are always adding new animals and information so please
stop by and see what's new. We also hope that you will check out our other
websites, and for great information about
animals of the rainforest. Thank you for visiting and we hope you enjoy our
reference to desert animals.
