Mountain lions are the second largest cats found in North & South America!
They are solitary animals, only coming together for mating and will otherwise hunt and live alone. Mountain lions are skilful predators capable of taking down large prey. They are mostly active at night and will use the cover provided by their territory to stalk and ambush prey.
Mountain lions have a light brown fur coat covering their slender body and a long tail which assists balance. When hunting they will sprint and powerfully leap on prey, delivering a fatal bite.
Size: Males are much larger than the females. Males will reach sizes up to 120kg while females will weigh considerably less, from 29-64kg.
