The Argentine cougar, commonly known as puma (Puma concolor cabrerae) is a subspecies of cougar native to western and central Argentina. It weighs between 32–82 kg (70-180 lb). In San Guillermo National Park, 80% of their diet are vicunas, while 11% is from mice and 9% from hares, they also prey on guanaco. When harassed by Andean condor, they may abandon their kills, which cause them to kill 50% more prey than North American cougar.
