Something I learned recently.


Pumas are slender and agile cats.


This physique allows it great leaping and short-sprint ability.


The puma is best adapted for short, powerful sprints rather than long chases.


It is adept at climbing.


The puma is a capable stalk-and-ambush predator.


When the puma does attack, it usually employs its characteristic neck bite.


Copulation is brief but frequent.


Only females are involved in parenting.

Wikipedia is amazing.
