The larger terrestrial African predators are at the apex of the food chain, based on a diverse prey animal population which in turn, is based on the unique and varied habitats provided on the African continent. The prey animal base of the larger Africa predators may, therefore, include all animal species; tragically, even people are killed and eaten by the larger African predators.

The focus of ALPRU is on a wide range of prey animals in Africa, but among others, the mammal species from several Orders, Families, Subfamilies and Genera will be included.
