Vanishing Kings : Lions of the Namib Desert, Hardback Book

Vanishing Kings : Lions of the Namib Desert Hardback


The ancient Namib is the only desert on Earth where a small population of desert-adapted lions occurs.

Remarkably, these unique lions continued to survived along Namibia's Skeleton Coast, but until 20 years ago were merely phantoms - elusive and seldom seen - and then believed to have become extinct.

In 1997 scientist Dr. Philip Stander discovered a small pride of survivors in the heart of the desert and began to study the lions: work that has become a lifelong commitment.

He has been able to unfold the secrets of these highly adaptive big cats, who seemed to thrive in this harsh environment.
