      Mountain lions (Puma concolor), throughout their distribution, eat a variety of prey, but primarily consume large prey (e.g., cervids). While monitoring radio-collared mountain lions, we saw a mountain lion kitten consuming a Texas tortoise (Gopherus berlandieri). Small prey might increase survival of young mountain lions developing predation skills required for solitary survival as adults. 4) Texas Tortoise, Gopherus berlandieri, sometimes called Berlandier's Tortoise (named after the French naturalist who did extensive studies in northern Mexico) is the smallest of the four and the one that is the focus of this article. Its home range is south Texas into the northeastern Mexican states of Coahuila, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas.
