Puma Profiles: P-20

Mountain lion among grass and brush.

Initial capture date: Oct. 2010

Researchers were trying to recapture P-12 in Malibu Creek State Park to replace his collar. Instead, they were surprised to find an unknown male lion on that October day in 2010. Genetic testing revealed P-20 was the son of P-1 and an unknown female just like P-11, P-14 and, the most famous of the brothers, P-22. P-20 died a month later in a fight with another unknown male lion, who went on to kill P-14 several months later.
