Cougar is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.


Cougar has amber eyes with short orange hair that fades to white towards the tips, with a brown mark on the center and bangs at the side of her face that fade to brown. Befitting her species, she has a pair of animal ears with brown spots on them, and a long tail that is orange and white on the back. She wears a white shirt with a pink tartan pattern that matches with her short circular skirt. She has a pair of long gloves and thigh highs of the same color as her hair and tail, with a pair of matching boots with brown laces.

In Real Life

One of the large cats native to the American Continents, the cougar's habitats range from the Andes Mountains to the Yukon in Canada. The second largest cat, behind the Jaguar, it has become adapted to a wide range of environments, which have characteristics such as : dense brush, canyons, rim rocks, forested areas, mountainous deserts, and escarpments. Along with the Jaguar, the Cougar faced intense efforts by humans to extirpate it from it's habitats, resulting in most Cougar populations in Eastern North American destroyed, with various small pockets surviving (Florida). Populations continue to survive in many Western American states, the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, and the Yukon. In California, rapid human development and growth of infrastructure continues to place even more pressure on increasingly isolated Cougar populations.

The one-tone silver grey fur coat

The fourth largest cat, Cougars can reach up to 8 feet from nose to tail-tip in males, and 6.7 feet in females. Closer to the equator, the average size decreases, with the largest Cougars being found closer to the North and South poles. Compared to the other American Cat, the Jaguar, Cougars are on average smaller. Cougars are also physically unable to roar, as they lack the larynx system in the throat which the Panthera genus uses to emit roaring noises. Most cougars have one uniform fur color, which can be tawny, silver-grey, or reddish. Infants are born with spots and rings on their tails, but as they age, the spots gradually fade. With one of the largest hind leg to body proportions in the Felidae genus, the Cougar has an amazing jumping ability, and has a top running speed of 80 kmph. It's strong legs also enable it to climb vertically or at an angle, which allows it to evade its competitors or predators.

The Cougar has a wide range of its diet; prey include : bighorn, sheep, caribou, mountain goat, coyote, pronghorn, mule deer, and elk. In some cases, the Cougar is also known to prey on domesticated livestock. Smaller prey include : porcupines, beavers, hares, raccoons, wild turkey, and peccary. In general, the Cougar does not scavenge kills from other animals, and prefers to consume food it has killed itself. However, in some circumstances, Cougars have been noted to scavenge deer carcasses.

Like the grand majority of cats, Cougars are solitary. Only mothers and their kittens live in a group. Males travel and hunt alone, and only meet other individuals during mating season. Males are very territorial. If juveniles fail to leave their maternal hunting grounds on time, conflicts can emerge between the juvenile and his father.
