Mountain Lions


  • Mountain lions have the largest hind legs of all the cat family members. This makes them excellent jumpers, able to leap from the ground 18 feet up into a tree.
  • The eyes of the mountain lion’s cub appear blue due to lack of pigmentation; at approximately five months, the eyes turn brown and remain brown throughout the mountain lion’s life.
