How lions and other mammals attack

Harris, Tim (Ornithologist)2021
Books
Speedy cheetahs outpace their victims, polar bears can sniff out a seal from far away, killer whales team up in coordinated attacks and chimpanzees grab weapons. Different techniques and adaptations are examined in detail, showing how mammal predators are perfectly suited to their habitat and to the prey they pursue. Each spread has dramatic photographs and looks in detail at one mammal predator and focuses on its primary weapon, such as claws, stamina or ambush. The prey animal shows us how it attempts to evade certain death, whether through camouflage, a speedy retreat or safety in numbers. Stat panels give readers a quick overview of how predator and prey stack up against each other.
