In this work, we have considered a discrete-time discrete prey-predator. The discrete-time model is formulated in terms of difference equations and is obtained by applying a nonstandard finite difference scheme of Mickens type. We have discussed the existence and the local dynamics of the fixed points. Analytically, we demonstrated that the system undergoes a Neimark-Sacker bifurcation. Under a parametric condition, all chaotic features are justified numerically. Finally, we use two chaos control strategies to control the Neimark-Sacker bifurcation.
