Ranging from the largest - the Tiger to the smallest species - the Rusty-spotted Cat and Black-footed Cat, the world's wild cats are some of the most beautiful, ferocious and feared carnivores in the world. Wild Cats of the World provides a detailed account of each species of wild cat, examining their importance throughout history and the future of some of the most endangered breeds.

The Wild Cat Book also highlights the grave threats faced by the world's wild cats--from habitat destruction to human persecution. From the extraordinary acrobatics of the arboreal margay--able to cling to a tree branch by a single paw thanks to its unusually flexible ankles--to modern declines in African lion populations, The Wild Cat Book is.
