Predators are animals that eat other animals. Some of these hunters are sneaky. They wait for prey to come close, and then they pounce. Others make traps or use deadly venom. But many predators rely on speed to get a meal. They are faster than their prey.
Animals that can be food for another creature have their own ways of staying safe. Some are good at hiding. Others are poisonous or protected by armor or spines. But many escape danger by being quick.
This book is about these fast animals—some of the speediest on earth.
