Also known as the cougar, mountain lion, and catamount, the puma is a large cat found in South America, Central America, and North America. Despite their size, pumas are more closely related to small feline species rather than tigers, lions, jaguars, and so on.

  • Scientific Name: Puma concolor
  • Characteristics: The second largest feline species found in the Americas, the puma has no known natural predator and will eat anything from deer and livestock to mice and insects! With that in mind, it shouldn’t be hard to keep this beautifully hand painted puma well fed!
  • Size and Color: Although their coats aren’t spotted or stripes like other large cats, pumas are still easily identifiable due to their simple yet striking tawny-brown coat. Standing 4.75 inches tall and 10.5 inches long, this model is as tall as a soda can and just an inch and a half shorter than a ruler.
  • The Puma Concolor is part of the Wildlife Wonders™ collection.
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free.
  • Product Description


    Other than the jaguar, the puma is the largest cat found in the New World. Due to their amazing adaptability, large diet, and wide range of distribution, the puma is classified as an animal of least concern by the IUCN. While their populations are becoming more separated from one another due to habitat fragmentation, this is no immediate concern over their population numbers.

    Present Status Pumas are officially listed as animals of least concern due primarily to the large range they still enjoy but there are subspecies in South America and Florida that are protected locally due to their dwindling numbers. They are considered near threatened in Brazil. Pumas were once readily found in the east and Midwest in America but they have not existed in those historical locations for centuries, at least not in any great numbers. Efforts have been made to introduce Texas pumas into Florida to prevent inbreeding of the Florida panther and the program seems to be a success.
