Ross, a long-time safari guide and photographer in Kenya, in collaboration with photographer Reesor, gives center stage to five major predators of the African bush: lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, and crocodiles. Accompanying images of each predator on the prowl and at play (more than fifty for each animal), text offers insights on the daily lives, social patterns, hunting methods, and biology of the creatures, along with tips for observing them on safari. Also included are biological sketches, fact sheets, and a pull-out guide listing and comparing the major characteristics and statistics of the five predators. Oversize: 10.25x10.25".
