Cougar cats of the Americas


This 31 March 2020 video says about itself:

Puma or cougar? Candid Animal Cam takes you to the Americas to meet this wild cat

Did you know that the puma (or the mountain lion, cougar or Florida panther) is the animal with the most names? That’s right, there are 80 different names for the animal from the Puma genus. This week, we’re talking about the different sub-species of puma found across the Americas.

Special thanks to the San Miguelito Jaguar Conservation Ranch, WWF-Peru and Sean M. McHugh for sharing this footage with us. Every Tuesday, Mongabay will bring you a new episode of Candid Animal Cam, so subscribe and hit the bell icon to make sure you never miss a camera trap video again!

And shout out to our writer and biologist Romi Castagnino, who hosted, produced and shot this video!
