About this book

A companion to the Big Cat Diary: Lion and Leopard, and designed to complement the BBC television series, this book explores the lives of cheetahs in the Masai Mara and beyond, and in particular, their history, biology, behaviour and conservation. As well as a detailed examination of biology and behaviour, Scott provides an historical perspective of the cheetah families featured in the series. Finally, Scott discusses the conservation measures required to ensure that big cat populations survive.
