Caption: Mountain lion. View of a mountain lion (Felis concolor) with a killed elk (Alces alces) in the snow. The mountain lion is also known as the puma, the panther and the cougar. A fully grown mountain lion has a body length of 1-1.6 meters and a body weight of up to 100 kg. It is a solitary and territorial animal. The mountain lion preys on most species of mammals including elks but seems to prefer deer.
