Shortly after that male mountain lion marked his territory in daylight, a female entered the same area. She first got a big drink, and then she went to the same marking area where we saw the male.
I think that this female was out looking for a mate, and she picked up on his scent after he marked. She's a beautiful creature, probably one of the mothers who we watched raise her kittens over the past couple of years. Her last litter of kittens probably stayed with her until they were 18-24 months old before they headed off on their own.
This is part 2 of 3 of the story of these two lions getting together. Check out the video!
