Prey capture by the larger fissipeds : the African lion Elliott, John Patrick


Predation by large fissipeds is examined using the specific example of the African lion. It is found that the lion is able to adjust its strategy and tactics at each phase of prey capture (search, stalk, attack, and subdue) so as to achieve a consistently high overall capture success with different prey and conditions.
