Although officially Included in the small cat genre owing to its physical attributes and inability to roar, the Puma shares an ancestor with the African Cheetah. Its great bounds of speed along with its long balancing tail are indeed reminiscent of the fastest land mammal. Its great hunting abilities have enabled it to survive in diverse habitats across the western hemisphere.
Though capable of generating tremendous speed, Pumas prefers to stalk their prey before pouncing on it with few lightning bounds, generating great momentum. Upon knocking down the prey Pumas deliver a lethal neck bite – suffocating the animal.
