Lion Around

Nice kitty!

Mountain Lions are also known as pumas, cougars, and catamounts. I've not heard the latter used in Arizona. Thanks to the many readers who let me know that catamount is used in the Northeast, especially Vermont.


  1. Catamount is used to describe a mountain lion in Vermont and New Hampshire (might be generally in use in upper NE of the United States).

  2. VERMONT....the University of Vermont mascot is "Rally the Catamount"
