Grasslands are home to some of the most magnificent animals on the planet-elephants, bison, lions-and hunters have found them to be enticing prey
As for animal adaptations in the grassland biome, migration is an apt example.

Animal Adaptations: The animals that live in grasslands have adapted to dry, windy conditions. There are grazing animals (that eat the grass), burrowing animals, and their predators; insects are abundant. A moderate of level species diversity exists on a grassland.
Agricultural development has endangered grasslands around the world . Grasslands are vital to hippos diets. Hamadryas baboons, pictured here grooming with sticks, live in the Horn of Africa, in the northeast part of the continent.
Agricultural development has endangered grasslands around the world, making life tough for animals on the plains. They leave the water in the evening, traversing up to six miles every night, to eat 80 pounds of grass. Hunted for their meat and, increasingly, their teeth, hippos are listed as a vulnerable to extinction by the IUCN. Photograph by Michael Poliza, Nat Geo Image Collection. With few natural predators and little human encroachment into their habitat, the species is thriving in the wild.
