Overview

Few animals can match the strength or grace of the big cats. A large male Siberian tiger, who eats anything from a frog to a bear, may weigh more than 600 pounds and be more than 12 feet long, nose to tail. A lion's earsplitting roar can be heard up to 5 miles away. And in only a few seconds, the cheetah can go from 0 to 70 miles an hour - that's faster than the fastest racehorse! Whether they are running, climbing, or leaping, these bundles of muscle are always ready for action.

There is much to discover about these masterful hunters - including how to help the big cats survive extinction.

Mr. Simon describes the attributes that make seven of the largest feral felines superb predators and details the specifics that distinguish one from the other.
