Florida Panthers - Pumas - Mountain Lions - Cougars - Felis concolor


Florida Panthers - Pumas - Mountain lions - Cougars are one of the most broadly distributed large mammals in North America. Mostly solitary, adults come together only in the breeding season; for the rest of the year they are extremely territorial. The cats are careful never to have a population density that will in and of itself deplete the food supply. They are primarily nocturnal and crepuscular, but on rare occasions can be observed during the day.
