Mountain lion family

We photographed a family of four mountain lions spending time at one of our remote camera station. The 3 juveniles would have been born in early spring 2015 so its a testament to their caring mother that these triplets have survived their first year. Mountain lions females typically give birth to two to three kittens.

To learn more about the life of a mountain lion family, check out this great video: The Secret Life of Mountain Lions. Wolverine researchers in Glacier National Park were surprised to see a wolverine male return to his kits in the autumn and spend time probably teaching them his survival skills, something rarely documented in other carnivore species. But this incredible mountain lion film shows that this same type of family bond may not be so rare.
