In grasslands, mainly grasses are found. Trees are very few in number. Predators such as lion, tiger, etc. that feed upon other animals are commonly found in these regions. It is very easy for these predators to locate their prey in the grass. Therefore, to protect themselves from these predators, animals adapt themselves by increasing their speed. The increased speed of the animal helps the weaker animals to escape their predator, thereby protecting themselves and increasing the chances of their survival.

The grassland is a place where very few trees or places are available for an animal to hide. Let us take example of a cheetah and a deer to understand the importance of speed for survival in the grassland. The cheetah is the fastest animal on earth. The deer is also very fast, but not as fast as a cheetah. But a cheetah does not have stamina to run long distances and it easily gets tired. If a cheetah is able to catch a deer in a short span of time, it gets food and can live for another day. Many a times, a cheetah dies after running several short sprints in the pursuit of a deer. A deer, on the other hand, can run long distances. If it is able to run quickly so as not to be caught by a cheetah it can live for another day. The examples of these two animals show the importance of speed for survival in the grasslands.

Speed is very essential for survival of animals such as herbivores in the grassland. If we consider their consecutive predators, we will see that lions and tigers hunt upon the weaker strata. But since trees are very scanty to hide behind for the animals , then the survival is only possible if the animals hunted upon by the predators increase their speed.

In the grasslands, there are limited no. of trees and places for animals to hide when the enemy attacks the animal, it has to run fast so as to reach a safe place if it fails it has to loose his life  so, speed is very important for survival in the grass lands for animals.
