What is the food chain in a grassland?

Answer

The food chain in a grassland is producers, primary consumers, secondary consumers, scavengers and detrivores. Each part in this food chain is an important part of life in this harsh environment.

In a grassland, the producers include grass, shrubs and trees, which are designated as plants that make their own food, also called autotrophs. The primary consumers are those that eat the producers, such as elephants and zebras.

Secondary consumers are animals that eat the elephants and zebras, including hyenas and cheetahs. The scavengers eat the corpses of the hyena and cheetah and include vultures and termites. Finally, the decomposers or detrivores eat the droppings of the scavengers.
