“Did I just see movement over there?” is the expression on this beautiful Mountain Lions face. This is wonderfully taxidermied piece that has a large sized male perched on rock in a descending movement. He is a great lion that has seen some battles judging by the scars on the face and forehead. (See attached photos) This is a nice sized male that measures a little over 7 foot in length (approximately 7’4″ total length nose to tail). We have awarded this mount our highest grade for taxidermy workmanship: “Premier”. He is standing on a great rock overhang that has terrific coloring.
Mountain Lions, also known as Cougars, are commonly found through out much of the central and western parts of North America and to a lesser extent even in to the eastern regions. While fairly substantial numbers roam freely, they are not often seen. This large sized male (called a “Tom”) comes from central Montana. The largest of cats can sometimes measure up to 8′ or more. They are tremendous hunters and have incredible strength for pulling their prey up into trees where it is away from other predators.
This is a great focal type piece that would work as a stand alone mount or as part of a collection of North American predators or big game species.
Mount overall dimensions are 19″ Deep x 48″ Wide x 48″ High.
