Your only thought is "I hope he has eaten today."Let National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Dereck and Beverly Joubert bring you closer to the power and majesty of the regal African lion. With fewer than 25,000 wild lions now left on Earth, the authors make a passionate plea to young readers to take an active role in securing a future for these magnificent creatures.
Offers a close-up look at lions through photographs and text that explore their territory, diet, physcial characteristics, and behavior, as well as the threat that humans pose to them.
