The Mountain Lion, the most beautiful and powerful cat in North America

This last week I went to the zoo with my nieces and nephew and we all got to be close to one the most powerful cat in North America. You could see the grace and beauty in this beautiful cat within 3 feet, but behind the safety of the glass which was just fine with me, because I know if I was that close in the wild, it would be the last thing I ever saw.

The big cats are a great and powerful animal.  I would not want to come across them in the wild.

Hi Todd, Awesome photo!  These animals are so beautiful - too bad they wouldn't appreciate being petted!

Yes indeed, Todd! You would be one tasty morsel. I bet you would feed that cat for a week! Met Ken Rosenbam on the plane going to Austin Texas yesterday. He said he knows you well! Phil

Dear Todd,
Their movements are so smooth, aren't they? Fluid ...
And ...  behind glass is good!
Have a happy day -

Todd, we don't have a zoo here but the opportunity to come upon these beautiful animals in the wilderness areas. We use to live in Groveland in the Sierras and they would come through our property at night hunting. We would hear the kill screams of the deer. We never actually came face to face with any but many times we would find the kill remains on our walks. We learned about the animal and always kept a watchful eye. Never alone and always vigilant. I like the photo and I would guess it to be the only way I would get the shot! Have a great day!

Todd, great shot.

Most of the cats sleep during the day. The local zoo's around here have a members package where at certain times of the year you can go in at night and get a totally different look at the animals.

They also do night time holiday events just for members.

The zoo...............always a cool field trip

Enjoy the day

Hi Todd -

Cats are beautiful and you got a great pic of this one!  You did a great job of not getting any reflection from the glass wall.  When my wife and I wilderness camp she always says she'd rather bump into a bear than a cat.  We've encountered bear but not cat so far which is fine with me too.

Best regards from the Q

Here kitty, kitty - NOT! I agree that you really want a big strong glass wall between you and this cat. Love the Oregon Zoo - and you did a capture a nice photo of this beautiful creature.

They're carnassial carnivores, but not carrion! Just smell dead and don't move.

Good move ttaking the sylbling's kids, cats prefer tender meat.

William, I was always told to never go camping alone, always go camping with someone slower than you!

Oh wow!!!  Now this is an amazing shot!  I live in cougar country in my backyard.  They are there, but I have never seen them.  Thanksfully in a weird way!!!

Todd-Nice photo. National Geographic has a series on the big cats. So graceful, agile, and strong. That's the whole athletic package, plus big teeth.
