Many animals rely on tress and crops to feed their families and themselves. Soil erosion ruins soil that crops need to grow and produce food. Not only do animals lose their food source but some also lose their habitats. Without crops to feed small animals like a lizard, them might not be able to find another food source and eventually die due to starvation. If small animals die, then bigger animals such as the mongoose or the monkey will lose their food source. Badgers rely on crops as well as small animals to feed its self.
