Powerful, sleek and designed to hunt and kill other animals, the cougar is a cat, right down to its remarkable sense of balance, retractable claws and single-minded approach to independent living.
Wherever this solitary hunter lives, it is a superior predator, using its stealth, timing and strength to ambush and overwhelm its prey, whether it's a tiny mouse or a 500-pound elk.
Readers will learn about the cougar's special skills as a hunter and why it has the largest range of any wild land animal in North America.
Illustrated with beautiful fourcolour photography, Exploring the World of Cougars is a lively, factfilled introduction to this controversial cat.
