Cougar: A Cat With Many Names

Front Cover
Bearport Publishing, Aug 1, 2012 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 32 pages
Early one evening in October 2011, Gail Loveman heard a strange noise coming from outside her house in Boulder, Colorado. She looked through the glass door leading to her backyard—and was shocked by what she saw. There, standing on her porch, was a cougar! Because cougars are solitary animals that avoid contact with humans, it’s rare to see a cougar in the wild, and very unusual to see one near a house. In Cougar: A Cat With Many Names, kids will go on a real-life adventure with wildlife biologists as they investigate changes in the range of cougars as humans settle in the animals’ territories. Along the way, children will learn how these powerful cats hunt for food, raise their young, and adapt to life in mountains, forests, deserts, plains, and wetlands. Large, full-color photos and a dramatic narrative format will keep readers turning the pages.
