Cougar, catamount, puma, panther, screamer...all are names given to this shy and elusive predator.  Largest of the North American wild cats, a male can weigh over 200 pounds and measure 6'9" from nose to tip of tail.  Prints made by the mountain lion are quite round, 3 to 4 inches long with the hindprint being slightly smaller.  Formerly distributed throughout North America the mountian lion is now mostly found in remote areas of the US and Western Canada and much of Mexico.  A small population still exists in southern Florida where the species is considered endangered.  Once hunted to near extinction, mountain lion populations are making a comeback.

Mountain lions are solitary creatures and are most active at dawn, dusk, and at night when they roam their home area in search of prey.  They commonly select deer as their prey of choice but they also hunt wild hogs, raccoons, rabbits, porcupines, elk, bighorn sheep, rodents and birds.  Can we learn the lesson that this beautiful and unique creature has for us; balance?
