  • Masters Of Attack

    +

    For carnivores, their food does not grow on trees. If they are to survive they must employ all the strategies at their disposal to overcome a food source that is equally determined to live as they are. They must find it if it hides, chase it if it flees, track it if it is elusive and defeat it if it fights. The predator's physical powers will only finish the job. The real work comes down to strategy.

    Animals can employ a number of different defenses in order to withstand an attack.

Whatever the strategy, it is clear that animals will do whatever it takes to survive the wild.
