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.
