Exploring the World of Cougars by Tracy C. Read


Exploring the World of Cougars by Tracy C. Read

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.
