Hunting with Mountain Lions
A mountain lion's ability to pounce 40 feet (12.2 m) makes it a fearsome predator. But this big cat has more adaptations to keep it well fed, including sharp claws, a flexible spine, and large, padded paws. It also has interesting habits, such as hiding its prey from other animals so it can come back again and again for a bite to eat. Readers will learn much more about these fierce animals of North America, including the endangered Florida panther, in this book's fact-filled pages and colorful photographs.
