On of the two unspotted cats

The puma (or mountain lion, león; Felis concolor) is almost as large as the jaguar but is a uniform brown (the shade varies from area to area among individuals), with paler under parts, a white throat and muzzle, and a dark tip of the tail. Like all the cats, they are active both day and night, are fairly widespread but rarely seen, and are endangered.
