Cougar

Puma concolor

The Puma, also known as the Mountain Lion, is a very adaptable wild cat. It feels just as comfortable in snow-covered mountains as it does in tropical rainforests.
The Puma is famous for its great strength and mobility. He can jump up to 7 meters high and far with one set. On short distances it can run up to 72 km/h, this ability is rarely used.

Adult puma have hardly any natural enemies, only from wolf packs and bears pumas usually flee onto a tree. But the greatest enemy is man.
