Take a walk on the wild side! Lynx, bobcats, and mountain lions are some of North America's most skillful hunters. They see well in one-sixth the light that people need. More than 20 muscles swivel their ears to help them detect the softest sounds. Even the smallest wild cat -- the bobcat -- is a powerful predator. About the series: Each book in the Welcome to the World of Series introduces children to wildlife through color photographs, lively description and amazing facts.
