Meet P-43 and P-44, the two newest members of our mountain lion study! These 3-4 week-old females are from two separate litters on opposite ends of our study area, one in the Santa Monica Mountains and the other in the Santa Susanas.
P-44 makes her home in the Santa Susana Mountains. Her mom is P-35, who was collared in April of 2014. P-35 is estimated to be about five years old and this is at least her second litter (biologists captured remote camera images traveling last year with older kittens).
