Carnivores of the world

Luke Hunter ; illustrated by Priscilla Barrett

Carnivores are among the most spectacular creatures in the natural world, and also the most feared. "Carnivores of the World" is the first comprehensive field guide to all 245 terrestrial species of true carnivores, from the majestic polar bear and predatory wild cats to the tiny least weasel. This user-friendly illustrated guide features 86 color plates by acclaimed wildlife artist Priscilla Barrett that depict every species and numerous subspecies, as well as about 400 line drawings of skulls and footprints. Detailed species accounts describe key identification features, distribution and habitat, feeding ecology, behavior, social patterns, reproduction and demography, status, threats, lifespan, and mortality. "Carnivores of the World" includes an introduction that provides a concise overview of taxonomy, conservation, and the distinct families within the order Carnivora.
