Ranging from the largest terrestrial carnivore, the Polar Bear, and hyper-predatory wild cats, to the tiny Least Weasel that can squeeze through a wedding ring, the true carnivores - order Carnivora - include some of the world's most charismatic, admired, feared and spectacular creatures. The first comprehensive guide to every terrestrial species, this book profiles all 250 of the world's carnivores. A detailed account for each species describes key identification characteristics, distribution and habitat, behaviour, feeding ecology, social patterns, life-history statistics, conservation and the latest on classification, including some unexpected discoveries. Eighty-six magnificent specially commissioned colour plates by top wildlife artist Priscilla Barrett depict each species, with subspecies and colour variations shown for many. There are line drawings of skulls (230) and footprints (110), as well as black-and white sketches depicting the behaviour of specific species (45).
