Cats of Africa by Like Hunter
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A stunning coffee-table book that will examine all the members of the cat family - big and small - throughout Africa. Luke Hunter's text will explore the lives of cats in unprecedented depth, and will compare and contrast all African species - concentrating on the big three - lions, leopards and cheetah - illustrating how this family succeed at being super-predators. The text will examine the different habitats cats occupy, adaptations they require, their social and reproductive lives, and how they hunt. It will also explore their stormy relationship with people. Gerald Hinde's superb photography will support the narrative.
