The 4-legged kind of Cougar (also known as: Puma, Mountain Lion, Panther. Or Catamount) ranges from the Canadian Yukon to the Southern Andes of South America. It has the greatest range of any large wild terrestrial Mammal in the Western Hemisphere. Its found in every major habitat type in all 3of the Americas. So yeah, basically could find it in almost all of America's and although it prefers areas with dense underbrush and rocky areas, it adapts and lives in deserts, forests, plains, jungles, snow covered mountains.. You name it! On April 14, 2008, police shot and killed a Cougar on the North side of Chicago, ILLl! These do not all look like the reddish-brown Cougar most North-Americans know, it is only one of the 6 Subspecies. Fun-fact: it is the most closely related to the smaller felines and very closely related genetically to the domestic cat.
