|In this paper, a planar system of ordinary differential equations is considered, which is a modified Leslie-Gower model, considering a Beddington-DeAngelis functional response. It generates a complex dynamics of the predator-prey interactions according to the associated parameters. From the system obtained, we characterize all the equilibria and its local behavior, and the existence of a trapping set is proved. We describe different types of bifurcations (such as Hopf, Bogdanov-Takens, and homoclinic bifurcation), and the existence of limit cycles is shown. Analytic proofs are provided for all results. Ecological implications and a set of numerical simulations supporting the mathematical results are also presented.
