Summary
This program travels to the savannas of Kenya, the grasslands of Australia, and the Cerrado of Brazil to study the remarkable interaction of plants and animals in the grassland biome. Viewers learn about an ecosystem built around the acacia tree, and the role of rhinos in making the savanna fit for antelope in East Africa. In the Cerrado, the video reveals how maned wolves get by on a low nitrogen diet with the help of a fruit called the wolf apple. And in Australia, a weird cast of mini grassland characters - bandicoots, rock wallabies, quolls - are introduced
