Large, fierce, and often dangerous predators might seem the best survivors. They have superior strength, great speed, and high levels of intelligence. If they are so well equipped, why are they among the rarest of animals and the most threatened by human activity? To answer these questions, Ron Hirschi and Thomas Mangelsen introduce young readers to some of the earth's most spectacular predators: cougar, polar bear, lion, cheetah, tiger, grizzly bear, and killer whale. They examine the animals' past and present, and speculate on their future. In a lively and informative text, Ron Hirschi takes a look at the world in which these animals live, the environmental challenges they face, and what biologists and other people around the globe are doing to help these majestic animals survive. With spectacular photographs by Tom Mangelsen, Lions, Tigers, and Bears offers a realistic - and hopeful - look at earth's great predators.
