When this picture first hit the Internet, some thought it was a deer. Laughing I asked for the original jpeg and other pictures from the camera. These are what I received, now I am sure this is a mountain lion. Now I would like to go to this location and verify the shot. Very Happy Very Happy

Lets compare the ear of a deer and a mountain lion. The bob cat in the picture has pointed ears with tuffs. The third cat does not. The third cat also does not have white marks on the back of the ear, indicative of a bob cat. Others say this might be a deer.
These are pictures of a deer ear Arrow

back of the ear...



front of the ear


and the chin of the deer.

I believe this is a mountain lion.... Idea Idea

if you want to look at the back of a bobcats ear, go look at the thread here called "next weeks bobcats" scroll down a bit and there is a nice picture of a bob in daylight showing the back of his ears.

I must admit-the longer I study that picture, the more i think you have cougar picture-for one thing, bobcats almost always have some pattern to their coat-where in NY were they taken?

My bobcats live in Albany county. Many bobcats in NY/New England have no spots on the body. In other pictures I have gotten you can see spots on the legs. There is a PA picture on here that the cat has the most spots I have ever seen on bobbie!! Then there are other PA cats with no spots. The coloring varies a LOT!

haha very funny Laughing

Looks like a cougar to me. Maybe an old one Question

Could just be a coincidence but I think I see something thats points to its sex.

Just so I don't sway anyone I'll see if anyone else notices before I point it out.

The back has a "low swoop" to it. Not much, but a deer doesn't have that.

Like I said could just be a coincidence but I'll point out the first thing that jumped out at me.

When I look at the back of its head I can't help but notice what looks like a smaller cougar paw print. I can't help but think maybe a kitten was recently climbing on mom. If a kitten was climbing on mom recently couldn't her fur still be pushed the wrong way showing us its paw print?

So I thought if this is a paw print maybe I could see some damage inflicted by a male during mating. I do see something that closely ressembles a bite. I also see what looks to be claw impressions from where a male might of been holding on. When I get some time I'll do some doodling on the picture and try to point these things out.

Like I said could just be a coincidence. In my experience too many coincidences means I might just be onto something. This is why I'm leaning towards a female.
