9780007149209: Cheetah (Big Cat Diary)

This companion to the successful BBC1 Big Cat Diary series, goes beyond the day-to-day footage to explore the bigger picture of the lives of cheetahs in Africa. Following the huge success of Big Cat Diary week in January this year, the big cat team are now preparing their sixth series for the BBC. Having lived in the Mara for 30 years, Jonathan and Angie Scott are widely respected experts on all of Africa's three big cats. Big Cat Diary: Cheetah is the third in a series of three books designed to complement the BBC TV series, and provides a complete picture of the lives of the cheetahs that live in the Masai Mara and beyond. As well as a detailed examination of biology and behaviour, the book provides an historical perspective of the cheetah families featured in the series, including the well-known Queen and Kike. Jonathan and Angie Scott look outside the Masai Mara Game Reserve, to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Ngorongoro Crater, and Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa. They explore how we can conserve the big cat populations and ensure they can maintain breeding populations. Cheetahs are graceful and beautiful as well as being among the fastest creatures on the planet. With award-winning photography and fascinating stories, Big Cat Diary: Cheetah ensures that Big Cat lovers will not be disappointed.
