The social mountain lion
Nature and wildlife always has the capacity to surprise us. That in our observations of animal behaviour something is revealed to challenge what we have previously understood about a species. Mountain lions are just one of those animals proving we have underestimated them by assuming they are solitary as so many of the big cats are. However the recent amazing filming of their interactions with each other seen through camera traps show us they are far from loner animals, that they in fact form 'friendships' with each other and share their food. I wonder what other animals we think we know all about are ready to show us surprising behaviour yet to be understood. Animals have complex intriguing lives that continue to open up a world of previously unknown behaviour that we can learn so much from.
