Young mountain lions let out charming roars

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Two young mountain lions were caught on camera letting out their finest roar in the mountains of California.

The cubs have been spotted by the Santa Monica Mountains National Park Service (NPS) and are about a few months old.

in a (n Instagram post, NPS said the female kitten, named P-116, and the male kitten, named P-117, were born in May. Her mother, named P-106, is reportedly six years old.

Biologist Jeff Sikich captured the moment the cubs purred and “roared” at the camera.

The babies were found in their mother’s den in dense Chaparral in the Santa Susana Mountains.

A biologist will track the mother’s movements via telemetry and check her kittens’ health status while she is foraging, feeding or resting.

The NPS said it has been studying the animals since 2002 to see how they survive in a “fragmented and urbanized environment.”
