For Anonymous who says “esta muy bonito el puma es el animal mas hermoso del mundo”
Yes I agree that PUMA/COUGAR/MOUNTAIN LIONS (Puma concolor), are among the most beautiful animals in the world. We have them living in the canyon where I live, though I have not been fortunate enough to see one—yet. © Steve’s Animal Portraits
- The cougar holds the Guinness record for the animal with the highest number of names, presumably due to its wide distribution across North and South America. It has over 40 names in English alone.
- The cougar is the largest of the small cats.
- Studies have indicated that the cougar and jaguarundi are most closely related to the modern cheetah of Africa and western Asia.
- Cougars can be almost as large as jaguars, but are less muscular and not as powerful; where their ranges overlap, the cougar tends to be smaller than average.
- The cougar is on average as heavy as the leopard.
- They are well known for their screams, as referenced in some of their common names, although these screams are often misinterpreted to be the calls of other animals.
