9780007211807: Big Cat Diary: Cheetah

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.

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.

'Everything you'll ever need to know about the top of the spots' BBC Wildlife

From the Back Cover:

The first of three books derived from the immense amount of work that has gone into producing four TV series, Big Cat Diary: Lion, is designed to be a companion volume providing a complete picture of the lives of the big cats 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 big cat families featured in the series. The book also looks outside the Masai Mara Game Reserve, to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Ngorongoro Crater, and Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

Finally there is the question of how to conserve our big cat populations. There could be as few as 15,000 lions left in Africa. How can we ensure they can maintain breeding populations, space to hunt and sufficient prey to survive?

Lions are the animals visitors most want to see in safari, the king of beasts, Big Cat Diary: Lion will ensure all cat lovers will not be disappointed.
