The coat is typically tawny like that of the lion, which is why it was initially called the "mountain lion",  but it otherwise ranges from silvery-grey or reddish with lighter patches on the underbody, including the jaws, chin, and throat. Its range spans degrees of latitude , from northern Yukon in Canada to the southern Andes. Six days later, and about 35 miles to the southeast, a hair sample was found in Carroll County. The mean weight of vertebrate prey MWVP that pumas attack increases with the puma's body weight; in general, MWVP is lower in areas closer to the equator. In the latest genomic study of the Felidae, the common ancestor of today's Leopardus , Lynx , Puma , Prionailurus , and Felis lineages migrated across the Bering land bridge into the Americas 8.
Investigations at Yellowstone National Park showed that elk, followed by mule deer, were the cougar's primary targets; the prey base is shared with the park's gray wolves , with which the cougar competes for resources. The coat is typically tawny like that of the lion, which is why it was initially called the "mountain lion",  but it otherwise ranges from silvery-grey or reddish with lighter patches on the underbody, including the jaws, chin, and throat. Only mothers and kittens live in groups, with adults meeting rarely. Whereas cougars tend to be larger as distance increases from the equator,  which crosses South America, jaguars north of the Amazon River in South America tend to be smaller. Those reported grew to only half the size of the parents. Those reported grew to only half the size of the parents. It stalks through brush and trees, across ledges, or other covered spots, before delivering a powerful leap onto the back of its prey and a suffocating neck bite. Since then there have been at least eight additional confirmed sightings in the state; all were immediately east of the Tennessee River in Middle Tennessee: The larger front feet and claws are adaptations to clutching prey. Litter size is between one and six cubs; typically two. Born blind, cubs are completely dependent on their mother at first, and begin to be weaned at around three months of age. As they grow, they begin to go out on forays with their mother, first visiting kill sites, and after six months beginning to hunt small prey on their own. Caves and other alcoves that offer protection are used as litter dens. Unlike several subordinate predators from other ecosystems, cougars do not appear to take advantage of spatial or temporal refuges to avoid their competitors. Chronic stress can result in low reproductive rates when in captivity as well as in the field. Ranges of females may overlap slightly with each other. Currently, it is referred to as "puma" by most scientists  and by the populations in 21 of the 23 countries in the Americas. North America was then repopulated by a group of South American cougars. In the United States east of the Mississippi River , the only unequivocally known cougar population is the Florida panther. The cheetah lineage is suggested by some studies to have diverged from the Puma lineage in the Americas see American cheetah and migrated back to Asia and Africa,   while other research suggests the cheetah diverged in the Old World itself. Scrape marks, urine , and feces are used to mark territory and attract mates. With the taxonomic uncertainty about its existence as a subspecies as well as the possibility of eastward migration of cougars from the western range, the subject remains open. In the latest genomic study of the Felidae, the common ancestor of today's Leopardus , Lynx , Puma , Prionailurus , and Felis lineages migrated across the Bering land bridge into the Americas 8. Infants are spotted and born with blue eyes and rings on their tails;  juveniles are pale and dark spots remain on their flanks. They have a puma-like long body proportional to the limbs, but nevertheless shorter than either parent , but short legs.
