WTF. Looking at this on my laptop screen, took a photo of the image on your LJ page and google said it was a mountain lion, then went and found the exact same image on a webpage, that I assume you got it form.

All of the above. :) But I usually call them mountain lions.

there's no button for "all of the above". Foaming pumas indeed!

I deliberately left out the ability to select multiple options. I'm more interesting in see what name people most associate with the animal.

Okay, I said "cougar" since it's a cougar! That's what the zoo signs usually say first.

There are no mountains here
That's a young adult with wet hind paws and a wet tail.
Probably lives in the northern half of the US range.
Probably still hangs out with her mother most of the time.

There was a time not that long ago when I preferred the term "mountain lion", but lately I've preferred the term "cougar". After all, cougars live in the wild here, but there are no mountains here, nor are there any mountains in Saskatchewan where I last saw cougar tracks, so it feels odd to call them mountain lions anymore.
