Big cats are nothing like your average tabby. They're designed to be fast, intelligent, and powerful. Sharp claws and dagger-like teeth combined with the ability to silently stalk, jump long distances, and see in virtual darkness make these cats fierce predators. "Everything Big Cats" explores the world of these extraordinary and endangered creatures. Kids will learn what characteristics define a big cat, about their daily lives, about hybrids and cats in captivity, conservation efforts, and much more. An expert's corner feature provides exciting, real-life experiences with big cats from National Geographic photographers Dereck and Beverly Joubert. Packed with fun facts and amazing photographs, this book gives kids an in-depth look at these wild creatures
