Hehe, he seems to be like "maaan, not now ! staahp !"
(this was was shot through fence, was it not ? The lines in the background suggest it, because that's what I get when I do shoot through fence, but maybe it's just coincidence).
Anyway, nice shot as always.
(also, I didn't know the closest relative to a cougar was a jaguarundi, since they look so different !)

"cougars are never black". Does this mean that there can not be melanistic cougars or just that it isn't a common variation like with panthers?

it means that there are absolutely none melanistic cougars :)
if you type "black cougar/puma" to google, you indeed find a lot of photos of black cats, but all of them are just "badly marked" jaguars and leopards :) I know some ZOOs which keep black jaguars, but people post photos of animals, marking them as "black pumas", which helps to spread the myth :no:

Just look here on dA itself: [link]
