Cougars are incredibly cool cats!
If you want to know a little more about them before coming to the program
next week, try these puzzlers. (Scroll down past the last teaser to see
details for the presentation at Thetford Academy).
Question # 1:
I have the greatest range of habitat of any large terrestrial mammal in
the Western Hemisphere. WHY do you think I hold this honor?
I'm considered an efficient and agile hunter. I can even bring down
animals that are seven times my size. However there are four species that
I have to compete with for food. Can you name three?
I hold the Guinness record for the animal with the highest number of
names. 40 in English alone. Can you come up with 5 other names I am known by?
Despite my strength and hunting skills, I am often not included in the
Big Cat family, partly because we cannot roar. However, we do make very
distinct calls and vocalizations, some of which are referenced in our
popular names. Can you imagine What these vocalizations sound like?
Don't miss this awesome presentation!
