Cute face!

What did it smell like?

That's a good question. I rubbed him down, feeling the fur, bones and muscle. Looked closely at his paws and claws. Got closer than I was comfortable with to his big teeth. Next time I'm this close I will definitely take a whiff. Yea, I should be so lucky as to ever be this close again...

The Game Wareden said he was surprisingly clean for a mountain lion. Usually they are full of fleas and ticks. We see ticks almost every time we hike and If I lived in the forest with a fur coat I'd be covered with them too.
