Overview

Tall and small, cuddly and fierce, the world is home to some truly amazing animals. From the playful character of a raccoon to the ferocious presence of a wolf, readers will learn about the habits and habitats of an amazing range of creatures. Filled with valuable information, stunning photographs, and little-known facts, each book in the Amazing Animals series is the perfect choice for anyone looking to learn more about a favorite animal.

The Cheetah is the world's fastest land animal-and one of its deadliest hunters. Residing mainly in African grasslands, cheetahs spend much of their time stalking and chasing down prey in the hot sun. When they are not hiding in tall grass, cheetah cubs watch their mother hunt from a distance. Soon they, too, will set off on their own to hunt for food. Cheetahs offers an in-depth look at this magnificent animal and the problems it faces for survival.
