Nature. Life. Spirit. Being.

Mother Mountain lions are fiercely protective of their cubs.
They have been known to successfully fight off many different types of predators
 in defense of their young, such as the much larger American black bear,
the intelligent workings of a wolf pack and the powerful jaguar.
The female cares for her cubs until they are juveniles, teaching them the
skills necessary to survive in the wild 
until they are ready to discover their own territory.

Having numerous names: Mountain lion, Cougar, Puma, Panther, Painter, and Catamount
 this species is more closely related to smaller felines, 
including the domestic cat, than to any subspecies of 'lion'.
Many of their behaviors, such as cuddling up for a day time nap 
are similar to our beloved pets.

It is very unlikely as a human that you will ever encounter one of these 
elegant, illusive, and solitary beings.
Most people prefer it this way as there is an unreasonable fear of this predator.
This is completely unfounded (as most fears are), as only 20 people in all 
of North America have been killed by Mountain lions from 1890 to 2011.  
Many more people are killed by domestic dogs.
The real threat for a Mountain lion are humans, 
especially 'wildlife assassins', those who use guns and ego to kill.

When all of Life is cherished as sacred,
to be respected and allowed to fulfill its' destiny,
a balance is achieved that is guided by a greater wisdom.
Nature is perfect, 
a reflection of what we could be
if we lived in harmony, peace and compassion.
