Just had to share a post by the US Department of the Interior about this – good information on wild cats and beautiful images! Enjoy!
Live-action camera traps set by conservationists show the seldom-seen social life of cougars.
Sorting out wildcats is almost as difficult as herding cats. Here are general categories of these beautiful wild felines.
Lions can roar, but they can’t purr. This is because their vocal tract is shaped differently from a smaller cat.
Call it what you will – cougar, panther, puma, catamount, or mountain lion. This beautiful animal has charisma.
Southeast Asia’s flat-headed cat is even rarer than the fishing cat. It’s also considered to be a better fisher.
