actually, a puma, mountain lion and cougar are the same animal. a panther is spotted, dark brown or black. a puma is blonde colored. panthers are in the same family as leopards and jaguars. panthers live in Asia, Africa and in the Americas. cougars live throughout the americas. panthers are considered to be related to the big cat family, while pumas are more closely related to domestic cats, and are nocturnal. hope that helps...
Panther is a versatile word that can refer to different leopards, cougars, or mountain lions. It usually refers to a melanistic or black cat. Unlike leopards, Puma typically don't have spots, and they are also smaller than leopards. Genetically, they're also more related to domestic cats than the four big cats. ^^
