Puma - America's allrounder

puma Many animal species are adapted to quite narrow habitats providing certain living conditions. This is not different concerning cats: cheetahs, eg., are animals which are able to survive only in savannas and semi-deserts, while tigers are "forest creatures", which prefer habitats with a lot of trees and much water. But on the other hand there are also species, which are real allrounders, inhabiting all kinds of habitats in many subspecies. The most prominent examples are the Leopard in Africa and Asia and its American counterpart - the Puma (Puma concolor) .
