Interesting video, because I had always heard that the big cats don't (can't?) purr.
"Tigers Can't Purr....Of all the big wild cats, only cheetahs can purr. That's because lions, tigers, jaguars, and leopards have a larynx bone is flexible, though they do make many other noises to show they're happy."
And then I found this:
"Cougars—also called mountain lions, pumas, and panthers—are not classified as big cats because they can't roar; they can only purr."
Learn something new every day.
But I beg to differ about the roaring part...seems to me the cougars on this thread are perfectly capable of roaring if the occasion calls for it.
