Big Cat Diary: Cheetah by Jonathan Scott, Angela Scott

Big Cat Diary: Cheetah is the last in a series of books, following the three big cats from the long-running BBC TV series. The beautiful, fleet-footed cheetah is the fastest cat on the planet, and also one of the most timid. Through the lives of Amber and her daughter Kike, Jonathan and Angela Scott take you on a journey, following the changing fortunes of the Mara's cheetahs through times of hardship and plenty, to witness their survival against extraordinary odds. Big Cat Diary: Cheetah gives us an intimate look at: the behaviour and social habits of the cheetahs, how they rear their young, how the cheetahs adapt to their surroundings, their hunting techniques, conservation issues. With stunning photography and absorbing first-hand accounts of the daily lives of the cheetahs, Big Cat Diary: Cheetah is a must-have for every big cat fan.
