Creating a fictional world for characters & creatures – Dry heathlands habitat

Creating a world for characters and creatures sounds easier than it is. Each habitat comes with its own challenges and abundances. This is the sole reason why there is so much variety of species these days, including animals (and humans), plants, and anything in-between. In turn, they change the environment, creating a delicate balance between demand and availability. Heathlands are usually fairly dry and sandy habitats that depend on animals for their existence.
