Mountain Lion at a Water Hole
I captured a couple of clips of a mountain lion, perhaps the mother from the trio that we saw recently, at a water hole. First, she drank, and then she licked her giant paw, before sauntering away from the water.
Here she is on a trail near the water hole.
And here is the video of her at the water hole. I hope that you enjoy the short video, either here or at Youtube.
What a great video! It's so good to know there are still mountain lions out there.ReplyDelete
she is so beautiful and I love the smacking sounds she makes while drinkingReplyDelete
Just got to get one of those cameras....ReplyDelete
As that mountain lion is walking away from the water, it appears that she is limping...perhaps why she was licking her paw...?ReplyDelete
I noticed that too. I hoped it was just something very minor... I'll be checking cams again soon so maybe I'll find out something more!Delete
That is one huge paw!ReplyDelete
Wow so awesomeReplyDelete

A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. And the size of those paws. Whoa.ReplyDelete
Not quite as relaxed as the bears. Can't believe the clarity of the sound.ReplyDelete
Everyone gets thirsty, and kitties are big on clean paws.ReplyDelete
With all the heat around, we bet that water was refreshing. Thanks for sharing the video.ReplyDelete
I love those magnificent animals. I always love these videos. Thanks.ReplyDelete
That must be what Moxie and Della sound like when they drink, but only if my ear was right next to their bowl! Really special video - thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
We love seeing those big kitties, from a distance!ReplyDelete
Such fantastic peaks into nature!ReplyDelete
Murphy & Stanley
MY! What big feet you have!ReplyDelete
Glad to have an option for seeing such a magnificent creature without making a pest of myself. :)ReplyDelete
I love that you can hear her lapping away too - she's a noisy drinker! :)ReplyDelete
