Hobyo grasslands and shrublands

WWF Abstract

Bordering the Indian Ocean on Africa's northwestern coast, the Hobyo Grasslands and Shrublands is an arid, shrub-filled ecoregion with relatively few people. Although the overall number of plant and animal species is quite low, the number of endemic species, particularly plants, is fairly high. As a result, it is considered a center of endemism for plants. Among the animals found here and nowhere else are such colorful-sounding creatures as the silver dikdik (a tiny antelope) and a species of forty-toothed golden mole.
