In this paper, a discrete-time system, derived from a predator-prey system by Euler's method with step one, is investigated in the closed first quadrant $R_+^2$. It is shown that the discrete-time system undergoes fold bifurcation, flip bifurcation and Neimark-Sacker bifurcation, and the discrete-time system has a stable invariant cycle in the interior of $R_+^2$ for some parameter values. Numerical simulations are provided to verify the theoretical analysis and show the complicated dynamical behavior. These results reveal far richer dynamics of the discrete model compared with the same type continuous model.
