Big Cats

Hunters of the Night

Series: Animals After Dark

By Elaine Landau

Lions, tigers, leopards, and jaguars are all big cats, and you would not like to meet them in the dark! They rest during the day but come to life at night to hunt. With a mighty roar, the big cats chase down their prey. Sharp teeth and claws and powerful jaws mean certain doom. Author Elaine Landau tells the reader all about these beautiful hunters: how they hunt, where they live, and what the future holds for the big cats.
