CAIRO BOOKS's Description
From the sleek cheetah and the majestic lion to the oft-maligned hyena and
opportunistic jackal, large carnivores reign supreme in the African wild. In
African Predators , award-winning photographer Martin Harvey's dramatic images
complement biologist Gus Mills's extensive field research to bring fourteen
species of African carnivores to life. This group contains members of the
families of cats ( Felidae ), hyenas ( Hyaenidae ), and dogs ( Canidae ), each
with distinguishing as well as common characteristics.
Mills describes the origins and evolution of these mighty predators, examines
their social structures and hunting behaviors, discusses their competition with
each other for shrinking territory and resources, and presents the conservation
status and outlook for each. Harvey's engaging full-color photographs bring the
everyday existence of these majestic animals vividly to life.
