Big Cat Diary Summary


Big Cat Diary: Leopard by Jonathan Scott

The second of three books accompanying the major BBC television series, this book features the Leopard families of the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. Whether hunting, playing, or relaxing, the lives of these leopards are captured through stunning wildlife photography and illuminating text.

Perhaps the most graceful and adaptable of all cats, leopards are also the world's most numerous big cats. Following on from the success of Big Cat Diary: Lion, this book goes beyond the day-to-day footage and explores the bigger picture of the lives of leopards in Africa.

Through the lives of the famous Big Cat leopards, Half-tail, Shadow, Beauty and Safi, we learn about:
* The biology and behaviour of the leopards
* How leopards have evolved
* How we can conserve our big cat populations

Jonathan and Angie Scott also go beyond the Masai Mara Game Reserve, to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, the Ngorongoro Crater, and Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa, to look at the broader picture of the African leopard population. How can we ensure they maintain breeding populations, have enough space to hunt and sufficient prey to survive?
