Which cat species has the largest range in latitude?



Mountain Lions (Puma concolor, aka Cougar or Puma) are known to live as far north as British Columbia and Alberta in Western Canada (roughly 60 degrees north), all the way down to the southern tip of South America (56 degrees south), spanning nearly 120 degrees of latitude. They live throughout the Western United States and Canada, and in most areas of Central and South America.

Mountain Lions historically lived throughout the United States, but now there is only one known population outside of the west, eking out an existence in Florida. Unconfirmed and sporadic sightings have continued to occur throughout many parts of the Central and Eastern United States.
