Sri Lanka has an extraordinary diversity of natural wealth, including an endemic sub-species of leopard. This beautifully illustrated book is the result of a group of Colombo-based enthusiasts' observations over 10 years in Yala National Park in SE Sri Lanka. The book aims to pay tribute to this remarkable animal and promote its protection. It breaks new ground in the accounts and photographs of the leopard's interaction with animals as diverse as the sloth bear, jackal and crocodile. The leopard's position as primary predator in Sri Lanka means that much of its activity is diurnal, making extensive observation possible.
