UC Santa Cruz researchers have revealed new findings on mountain lion behavior. The team of scientists published their work in the journal Science this month. The findings demonstrate the development of a high-tech wildlife collar to study the daily activities of mountain lions. The SMART collars measure the amount of energy pumas use for activities such as hunting. The researchers found the wildcat gauges the size of their pounce to the size of their prey. The team of students is now looking to test the collar on other carnivores.
