Cutesy Couger Cubs Born Spotted

Unlike the adults, cougar cubs are born with black markings – stripes and spots. As they grow up they gradually lose all of the black coloration and by they time they are about 2 1/2 years old it’s all gone. Their adult fur with be a tawny buff, sometimes with some reddish or sometimes silvery white with mostly white underneath.

Litter size can be up to 6 but is more commonly 2 or 3. The young cubs are highly dependent on Mom for some time but then begin to practice their hunting skills and by 2 years of age can go off on their own.
