About the Puma

The puma, also called a cougar or mountain lion, is a big wild cat that lives in North and South America. It has a tan or light brown fur and a long, powerful body that helps it run fast and climb trees.

Pumas are excellent hunters and can take down prey much larger than themselves, such as deer and elk. They are solitary animals, meaning they like to live and hunt alone.

Pumas play an important role in their ecosystem by keeping the populations of other animals in balance. They are powerful and majestic animals that are a symbol of strength and endurance.
