The mountain lion is also known as the cougar. They live in South America and many other areas in North America. They are quite heavy and weigh quite a bit compared to other cats. They are more active at night. In order to attack their prey, these animals will pounce on the unsuspecting prey and violently kill it. The mountain lion’s behavior has been tracked by scientists.
These animals create different sounds. They do not roar like a lion. Instead they purr when they are happy or content. Then they also will hiss and growl to either warn or go into attack mode. These animals are also quite territorial. They will mark their territory with their waste or scratching to denote that this is their territory.
