About this book

Stunning coffee-table volume that examines all members of the cat family in Africa. Hunter's text compares and contrasts all African species but concentrates on the big three - lions, leopards and cheetahs. His text examines the different habitats cats occupy, adaptations they require, their social and reproductive lives, and how they hunt.
