Big cats Juvenile Book Big cats

Patent, Dorothy Hinshaw.
J 599.75 PATENT

AUTHOR: DOROTHY HINSHAW PATENT. Big cats are on the prowl and ready to pounce. From their amazing skill as predators to their incredible strength and grace, big cats are some of the most awe-inspiring animals on Earth. Female lions work as a team to ambush and capture their prey. The more solitary leopard is able to drag an animal much larger than itself up a tree. And the Siberian tiger, the biggest cat of all, can weigh almost seven hundred pounds and measure the length of a compact car. Award-winning science writer Dorothy Hinshaw Patent clearly presents the facts about all big cats, from where they live to what they hunt to how they are threatened by humans. With fine artist Kendahl Jan Jubb' s striking watercolors, these perfectly adapted hunting machines leap off the pages.
