The Leopard in India: A Natural History

J.C. Daniel (Author)

Elegant in its beautiful coat and lithe body, the leopard is a majestic predator. It's small size permits it to occupy habitat denied to its larger cousins and its strength, intelligence and ability give it a wide spectrum of prey species ranging in size from a young buffalo to a small  rodent. Unfortunately, like its cousins, ruthless poaching and sadly diminishing habitat threaten its survival.

This book is the first to collate all available and detailed information on the leopard its distribution, colour, behaviour and co-existence with other animals. The book also includes the leopard's encounters with humans and the documented stories of man-eating leopards.

The author, an authority on the subject has sieved this body of work from the early issues of the Journal of the Bombay Natural History Society. The Author has consciously let the stories speak for themselves, with additional comments, where necessary, to give the reader the flavour of a bygone era.

This book is useful for students and researchers, policy makers and naturalists and all those who want to about the majestic animal to help save it from extinction.
