Well yes, but those names are used interchangeably. Scientifically, there is no distinction, just a Puma concolor (Cougar/Mountain Lion) species and Puma concolor couguar (North American Cougar/Mountain Lion) subspecies in the US.

Ooooops Must not have had my thinking cap on very well when I blurted that one out

Just like some of the florals I now know....
The Vincas verses the periwinkles. When I first started in the florals those same thing... different words for them threw me soooooo many times!

Question

This ~1/2" scat was found at a park. Is it deer or rabbit scat? Or something else?

Id say deer, based upon the size. I've had difficulty in my own yard differentiating the two. Amazing it is that one comes from a small animal and another from such a larger one. But I've found that size of each pellet best discriminates between the two.
