About this book

This is a comprehensive study of this big cat, concentrating on the endangered leopards in South Africa's Kruger National Park. The author presents the results of studies of population, sex, age, and composition, plus assessments of leopards' hunting patterns, catch-of-kills behaviour, and observed relationships with spotted hyenas, lions, wild dogs, cheetahs and humans.
`An excellent piece of work, long overdue, that will stand as THE study of leopards for a long time.' Mel Sunquist, University of Florida.
