Wild cats are ruthless hunters. Servals and caracals can jump off ledges, grabbing birds in flight. The "fishing cat," thanks to its webbed toes, can swim underwater after prey. A jaguar's jaws can crush the shell of a four-hundred-pound turtle. So why, then, are so many members of the Felidae family disappearing? Includes contact information for conservation groups. Web sources. Bibliography. Index. Full-color photographs and artwork.
