About this book

A field guide to the predators of the African bush. Each chapter is devoted to a predator - lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas and crocodiles - and delves into their biology and behaviors, how and when to observe them, interesting facts and statistics. The photos show both common and rarely seen behaviors, gorgeous scenery, as well as the more awesome and gruesome stalk-attack-kill behaviors.
