Abstract:

"Illustrated with two hundred color photographs of lions at every stage of their lives, this striking volume reveals the worlds of four neighboring prides that roam the diverse habitats - swamps, seasonal rivers, dry floodplains, acacia forests, and thick woodland - of Botswana's Okavango Delta. Drawing on continuing field research begun in 1995, Pieter Kat shows how Okavango lions challenge long-held assumptions about sociability, mating strategies, and hunting techniques. Pride males will readily mate with females from other prides, sometimes even abandoning their original group; females often leave their offspring vulnerable to predators; and as hunters, lions are more prone to mistakes and scavenging than is commonly believed."--Jacket.
