Additional Information

The Mountain Lion is probably the most adept and efficient hunter on earth.

It is known by more names than any other North American animal, but puma and cougar are the most widely used today.  Pumas have been aptly called the "Ghost of North America," and even in areas of Texas where they are thought to be a threat to domestic livestock, few humans have ever seen a wild lion.

Pumas generally hunt at night over a wide range, and their favorite food in South ansd Southwest Texas is deer and javelina, though much of their diet is made up of smaller animals.

Pumas are extremely fast for short distances and can jump more than twenty feet vertically.  They can easily climb trees, but they rarely do unless pursued by dogs.

Pumas avoid man and are certainly no threat to man in their native habitat.

This image is from the Charles Beckendorf Texas Wildlife book. The original was an acrylic painting on canvas (1992) and the size is approximately 11 X 14 inches.  The total edition size of this print is 500.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
