A surprisingly cuddly pair of mountain lions

A pair of mountain lions appeared in front of my trail camera. They were on the edge of a large meadow probably hunting for deer or elk. They were very curious about a scrape. As they sniffed it, they began rubbing their heads together. It was a sweet sight in our apex predator.

I think that this pair was a mother-daughter team. The daughter is probably a year or older. Check out the video to see this bonded pair.


  1. that is super sweet... there is not only puppy love but kitty love too ;O)

  2. What a great video. How lucky to have captured such a sweet interaction between those big cats.

  3. Your videos are award winning. so many things I'd never see w/o your trail cams
