The Western continent is primarily savanna and desert. The northern region and island chains to the north are forested and the climate ranges from warm temperate to cool temperate. The south western portion is a hot temperate zone. Satellite images show there are herds/swarms of large insectoid grazing beasts feeding on the grasslands of the savanna. They have 12 legs which appear to barely support their large bodies, and tiny insectoid heads with multifaceted eyes and a large mandible mouth. Satellite images occasionally show these herds being stalked by large 2 legged lizard like creatures.
