Masai xeric grasslands and shrublands

WWF Abstract

If you traveled from Kenya north into Ethiopia, you'd pass through a relatively large, dry ecoregion called the Masai Xeric Grassland and Shrubland. Rainfall is in short supply in this ecoregion, so grasslands come and go depending on the moisture they receive. But the mammals of the ecoregion are well-adapted to the hot, arid environment.
