Do you like ferocious felines? Then this is the book about big cats is for you. Some of the animals are tigers, lions, jaguars, & cheetahs. They give you their prey & tell why it is. A lion's prey is a Jaguar. I would recommend this book to people who love cats. Or whoever likes to learn about new things. If you want to take an awesome adventure with the big cats around the world you should read this book.By:Christian
