Wild cats are some of Earth's grandest treasures, and their stories excite the imagination of kids of all ages. Many of these lords of the wild are endangered, and the children who will one day bear our responsibilities need to admire and love the world so they can enjoy it and pass it on as good or better than they found it. After all, we appreciate what we understand, and save what we appreciate. The importance of this task has led many experts here at Wikibooks to donate their time and talents to bring this volume together.

A superbly illustrated book of the biggest animals, both living and extinct, that have inhabited the world. The animals are drawn to scale, as are the humans included in each picture to show proportion. This makes any number of comparisons possible.
