About: Carnivores: Quick ID guide to Africa's predatory mammals

Of all the animal groups, none looms larger in the imagination than the carnivores. Adapted for hunting and killing other animals, they represent the most powerful predators on Earth. Carnivores: Quick ID guide to Africa's predatory mammals covers both the mighty and ferocious, big cats, wolves, foxes and hyaenas, and a variety of smaller but equally formidable hunters, otters, polecats, weasels, mongooses and civets. Features include key ID points, behaviours and diet of each species, special adaptations for hunting live prey, annotated colour photographs, distribution maps and rare and elusive species.
