Female Mountain Lion looking into a camera
New photographs of a mountain lion and her offspring are giving park rangers a closer and more intimate look at how the animals are surviving in the Santa Monica Mountains. The report in the Los Angeles Times does not detail the location of the camera that caught these pictures. The Santa Monica Mountains start just north of Hollywood and extend west and north bisecting the city and ending in Ventura County. The famous Mulholland Drive and Highway starts near the Hollywood Bowl traverses the ridge of the mountain range.
