I wanted to put this here. The Sahel is the region of Africa south of the Sahara and north of the Savannah. Naturally, most Sulcatas can be found here. It is a semi-arid windy habitat with short grasses with pockets of shrublands and forests. There is a rainy and dry season, much like the Savannah.
This area is one of the most important places in Africa. It acts as a border between the dry deserts in the north and the tropical grasslands and forests in the south. Unfortunately, it is dissapearing in places, allowing the desert to grow. To make matters worse, in the '70s and '80s it was hit with droughts. not all hope is lost, though, as farmers in the region are being taught water conserving practices, along with trees being occasionally planted.
