If you ever wondered how difficult it really is to spot a cougar in the wild, you need to watch this video.
Although we don’t think of the mountain lion’s coat as being “camouflaged,” the light color does a pretty good job concealing their hiding spots in a wide variety of climates. But as you can see, it’s even effective in the snow.
Equally impressive is this particular cougar’s ability to sense that it’s being watched. This animal clearly knows that the cameraman is hiding in the bushes — despite the highly distracting fuzzy rabbit decoy.
