Prairie

grass

Prairie, rolling grassland that once covered much of interior North America. There are three types of prairie: tall-grass, midgrass (or mixed-grass), and shortgrass, which is found in the driest areas. Typical prairie animals are the coyotes, badgers, prairie dogs, and jackrabbits and the now largely vanished bison and wolf.
