4255, Cougar, Mountain Lion, Mascot of Penn State, Nittany Lion,
A Nittany lion is a mountain lion or cougar. It's that simple. Mountain lions roamed the State College area until 1880. At this time the remaining mountain lions were moved out of Pennsylvania.
The North American cougar (Puma concolor couguar) is a cougar subspecies in North America. It is the biggest cat in North America. It was once common in eastern North America and is still prevalent in the western half of the continent. It thus includes the extirpated Eastern cougar and extant Florida panther populations.
Mountain lion, puma, cougar, panther—this cat is known by more names than just about any other mammal! But no matter what you call it, it's still the same cat, Puma concolor, the largest of the small cat species. ... In Southern California they are commonly called mountain lions.
North American cougars are slender and agile animals. They have solid tan-colored coats without spots. Their heads are round and their ears are erect. Their powerful forequarters, necks, and jaws serve to grasp and hold large prey. They have four retractile claws on their hind paws and five on their forepaws, of which one is a dewclaw. The larger front feet and claws are adaptations for clutching prey.
North American cougars occur in the western half of North America including western Canada, the western United States, Florida, Mexico, and Central America, and possibly South America northwest of the Andes Mountains. They live in all forest types, lowland, and mountainous deserts, and in open areas with little vegetation. They also prefer steep canyons, escarpments, rim rocks, and dense brush.
- Cougars usually eat only once or twice a week.
- They cannot roar the way a lion does but can make sounds like a human scream.
- An Incan city in Peru called Cusco, was designed to be the same shape as a cougar.
- If cougars can't finish eating their kill in one go, they hide it behind bushes or under leaves and return to it later.
- The cougar is North America's second-largest cat.
- Cougars have an "M" shaped pad on their feet with three lobes on the heel.
