These natural elites of the African jungle comprise: African Buffalo- African Elephant- African Leopard- African Lion and the African Rhinoceros.Though Africa is a distinguished planetary wildlife treasure-trove, the presence of these five remarkable animals in Africa’s thriving wildlife sanctuaries heightens the thrill of a visit to any of Africa’s wildlife kingdoms. A visit to any of Africa’s national parks cannot be deemed complete, without capturing the mind-blowing spectacles of some or all of these big five animals. The unique qualities and attributes of each of these animals are beautifully presented in this book. Zoologists and national park authorities discovered that the distinctive behaviour and particular characteristics of these big five animals arise from their enormous size, their unmatched physical strength, or a combination of the former and the latter.Even though the leopard is a carnivore, it displays craftiness in setting traps for its prey. However, the Lion, which is also a carnivore, is more direct and brutal in catching its prey. When a lion is hungry, any animal which strays in its proximity should count itself truly unfortunate. Therefore, the lion is generally referred to as the “king of the jungle”- because by virtue of its sheer natural strength, armed with sharp long canines and piercing claws, it can pull down even a gigantic animal as the giraffe or zebra- without seeking external help.The African Buffalo, the African Elephant and the African Rhinoceros are among the largest animals in Africa’s jungles.
