More about this book
A visually stunning book telling the story of the fastest land creature on earth.
The cheetah is a highly specialized big cat. Long and sleek, the cheetah lacks the muscular strength of other big cats, such as lions or leopards but compensates for this with its agility and ability to move at great speed. Classified as an endangered species, the cheetah is under threat of extinction due to its loss of natural habitat as well as suffering from a genetic diversity.
In this book the authors follow cheetah families through key stages in their lives and explain its niche in the eco-system of the African savannah. The photography is outstanding.
