The Cougar is a beautiful and majestic wild animal indigenes to the North American continent. Due to the fact that the hunting grounds have dried up some in North America they have had to relocate to survive. The Cougar population has spread to parts of Europe and even as far south as Australia. The resourcefulness’ of this wild animal and its will to survive are one that no other creature can match. The Cougar will do anything to keep her life style and the way of life she has been accustomed to.
The female Cougar will generally pick out her mate when she feels the need to do so. She usually goes for the oldest member of the community due to his rank or richness he can provide in pleasing the female and satisfy her needs. The female only mates a few times a year to the old male but still stands by his side only to show her support when he has to perform his civic duty.
The hunting skills of this animal are the most remarkable of all the big cats. Most Animals hunt the weakest or slowest pray so to be an easy catch. The Cougar likes the younger pray for the challenge of the hunt and show off to the rest of the animals in the wild of what she caught. The skills of this animal in devouring its pray are something to be desired for. Once these big cats sink their manicured nails into you and get a hold of you. You’re pretty much done for.
The Cougar keeps in great shape so to be able to catch her young pray as she gets older. They pride themselves on this and like to show those attributes off to the rest of the Cougar population. In closing as I look at the picture of this beautiful animal I can’t help think what it would be like to meet this animal in the wild. If I had my choice to be eaten alive by a wild animal I would have to say it would be the North American Cougar.
