The mountain lion is a large, unspotted cat with a relatively small head and a long, dark-tipped tail. It has a Pale brown to tawny above and white overlaid with buff below. The mountain lion has a dark spot at the base of it's whiskers. The Ears are short and rounded. They also have dark backs and long heavy legs with big feet. I have a strong feeling that seamen had ran into this animal once before, because the way they looked at each other it seemed as if they had a bad encounter before.
