The Cougar, also known as mountain lion and puma, is Canada’s largest and most powerful wildcat. Males can reach up to two metres in length and weigh over 60 kilograms. Adult Cougars have short fur that is brown or greyish (sometimes reddish) over most of the body, with a white chest and belly. It has a long, black-tipped tail and black markings on the ears and muzzle. Kittens have spotted coats until they are about six months old. The Cougar is a shy animal rarely seen by humans.
