Puma cubs are born with a spotted coat but the spots fade as they mature. The adult's plain coat can be from red-brown to blue-grey. They live in North, Central and South America.

There are usually two or three cubs in a litter. They are fully grown and independent at about two years. Adults are basically solitary animals.
