Wild Cats by Caroline Brett
Wild cats are the supreme predators among terrestrial mammals, with virtually no enemy other than man. This book captures the 35 species of wild cats that stalk the earth. It explores their varied habitats and examines the physical features which make them such highly adapted warriors - ultra-efficient eyes, ears and whiskers, elaborate coat patterns for camouflage, and agile bodies. It also shows their less threatening side, as they bask, loll glamorously in trees and play tenderly with cubs.
