Learn About The Mountain Lion Family
Mountain Lion Family Portrait


Long ago, Native Americans called giant cats, such as lions, tigers, and mountain lions, the lords of the forest, or catamount (which means "cat of the mountains"). But did you know that mountain lions are actually very different from lions and tigers? Mountain lions don't roar ... they purr, just like house cats!

You are about to meet a family of mountain lions that are prepared for any situation. Rex the dad is an explorer who loves taking his family on adventures. Purrcilla is the energetic and wise mom. And Rory is the strong-willed daughter who loves helping her parents plan for the family's many adventures.

Take a look! Do you see any similarities between the mountain lion family and your own family?
