The Puma - Santiago Ordoñez

  1. 1. Hello! Let me talk to you, some things about The Puma, one of the most interesting felines
  2. 2. The Puma
  3. 3. Puma Food chain The puma is of the Felidae genus. It contains the jaguarundi, the cougar, the Owen's panther, and some representatives that were Old World fossils. The food chain for the cougar and the puma would include them dining on deer, smaller animals, livestock, and domestic animals. They have even been known to eat bugs. These cats are slender and have round heads. Their ears are pointed. The males cats can weight as much as 150 pounds.
  4. 4. Interaction with humans Although Native Americans maintained a respectful and reverent relationship with pumas in the distant past, the arrival of European settlers to the Western Hemisphere brought an attitude of fear and violence toward pumas. In the Eastern US, bounties in many states led to the annihilation of pumas from the eastern half of North America by the early 1900's. In California, diminishing puma populations became protected in the 1970's, and the puma has since been designated a specially protected mammal. California is the only state with a resident puma population that does not allow sport hunting. Its overall puma population is currently thought to be stable, however local populations are still at risk from a variety of human activities...
  5. 5. Caracteristics Pumas can stand about 60 to 76 cm (centimeters) at the shoulder and measure 1.5-2.75 m (meters) in length. These slender and nimble cats can be almost as large as Jaguars. The males weigh anywhere between 53-90 kg (kilograms), and females about 29-64 kg. Their size varies depending on the region they hail from, the Pumas found near the equator are smaller in size than the ones found near the poles.
  6. 6. Extinct or severly reduced populations Comtemporary Cougar population Where the Puma Lives Mountain lions are important as top predators in the ecosystems in which they live. They are instrumental in controlling populations of large ungulates.
