Savanna with zebras and impalas, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. Tropical savannas are home to large numbers of herbivore species. These herbivores frequently form mixed herds, and often eat different types of plants (herbs vs. grasses, for example) or different parts of plants (upper leaves vs. the entire plant down to ground).
