Social behaviour of pumas in Torres del Paine National Park, Chile.

CAT News 66: 38-39.

Abstract:

Largely studied across the American continent, the puma Puma concolor has been considered a solitary-living species. However, 118 interactions between adult pumas have been documented in Grand Teton National Park NP, USA, providing evidence of unusual social behaviour for this species. In 2016, while filming pumas in Torres del Paine National Park TPNP in Chile, our team documented a total of 11 social interactions between adult and subadult pumas, confirming that the species is not as solitary as thought.
