A pursuit predator. This distinguishes it from an ambush predator, while lies in wait for its prey. There's some gray area to the distinction, since any predator is likely to wait until its prey is very close before attacking, but some cases are obvious. For example, the alligator snapping turtle must wait until a fish is almost in its mouth, since it can't swim after one, whereas the wolf can chase a deer for hours if necessary.
