The Leopard in India: A Natural History
Elegant in its beautiful coat and lithe body, the leopard is a majestic predator. Its size permits it to occupy habitat denied to its larger cousins and its strength, intelligence and ability give it a wide spectrum of prey species ranging in size from a young buffalo to a small rodent. Unfortunately, like its cousins, ruthless poaching and sadly diminishing habitat threaten its survival.
This book is the first to collate all available and detailed information on the leopard: its distribution, colour, behaviour and co-existence with other animals. The book also includes the leopard's encounters with humans and documented stories of man-eating leopards.
