A hunted male mountain lion was found to have a full set of teeth and whiskers growing out of its head. Experts say this bizarre growth could be the remnants of a conjoined twin that died in the womb or possibly a kind of rare tumour.
In a recent study, researchers reveal that cougars may be making a comeback. The large felines originally suffered from habitat loss and hunting. Though, the animals may soon be able recolonize parts of the U.S. in as little as two decades.
It's official: the rare and elusive "eastern puma" has been removed from the list of North American wildlife protected under the Endangered Species Act. Traditionally, this would imply a recent loss or success for conservationists, but not so with this top cat. In fact, officials have revealed that the cougar in question may have been extinct for decades.
