Cougar or Mountain Lion? Actually, in Belize, these beautiful cats are called pumas. Pumas are one of the largest of Belize’s wild cats, second only to jaguars. Pumas can be found from Canada, Alaska, and the western United States all the way to Chile, and are adapted to a variety of environments, from deserts and shrublands to rainforests such as those found in Belize. Similar to jaguars, pumas are solitary, with males establishing large territories that can measure over one hundred square miles.
We adopted a puma to help support the Belize Zoo in its conservation efforts. The process is easy, and costs just $75 for a full year! Use the button below to learn more.
