Here they are, graceful and mysterious, all the world's wild felines -- from large, majestic lions to small fierce bobcats. Dozens of fullcolor, close-up pictures reveal a variety of moods and fascinating physiological details. Gaze into the panther's wide open mouth, with its long, sharp incisors, see how the rounded pupils of a fishing cat respond to lighting, and notice the serval's attentively pricked ears -- even when it shuts its eyes for a nap. You wont miss a stripe on the tiger or spot on the cheetah!
