This large-format book depicts the history, evolution, behaviour and day-to-day survival of one of the most fascinating cats of the African continent. It discusses the evolution of the cheetah, its lifestyle, mating, rearing of cubs, family grouping and its distribution in Africa. It also focuses on the endangered future of the cheetah, its declining numbers and decreasing habitats, touching on both genetic and conservation issues. The authoritative text highlights research in the field of wildlife conservation, dispelling several myths about the cheetah's so called "genetic bottleneck". The text is support by colour photographs.
