Mountain lions are elegant cats with a long body, powerful limbs, small head, short, rounded ears and a long tail. Mountain lions typically hunt at night and move stealthily as they travel. The coat of a mountain lion is a yellow, sandy color and may also be gray to reddish-brown. They are incredibly fast animals that can reach speeds of 50 mph in a sprint, though they typically travel at 10 mph. They can leap 15 feet and cover 40 feet in one bound. Their diet usually consists of deer, elk and hare, but may consist of a variety of other animals and mammals. For more, visit Montana Field Guide.
