    SoCal Mt. Lion pic

    I went to check a trail cam the other day and looked at the SD card when I got home. I was going through the pics and there was a little muley that walked past the cam a couple hours before this Mt. loin walked by.

    This is my frist big cat I've gotten in a pic, and thought I'd share with everyone here.

    Is there anyway to tell the sex from these pics? I was thinking it was a young female that looks really skinny?

    Very cool photo. Male or female it has that look of "looking for some dinner" look to it.

    Ya, thats the best way to tell......I don't know much about them besides they are a apexx predator that kill alot of deer. For some reason I thought someone might be able to tell by the facial features?

    Looks like a young tom to me... pretty masculine looking in the face.
