The slow-growing Joshua tree, which graces much of the park's desert ecosystem, is probably the most famous resident of the park.

What are mountain lions scared of?

Mountain lions depend on surprise to catch their prey, and, like most wild animals, they avoid dangers that they don't understand. Installing motion or timer-activated outdoor lighting, sirens, or jets of water around your home and domestic animal enclosures may help keep predators away.

Are mountain lions out at night?

Mountain lions are solitary animals, traveling alone except during mating season or when a female is supporting young. They can be seen at any time of the day or night, but are most active at dawn and dusk, corresponding with deer activity.

How do you know if a mountain lion is around you?

If a cougar is in the area and you are lucky enough to detect its presence, most often it will be due to "cougar sign" and not actually seeing the animal. These signs are evidence left behind after a cougar has passed through. Cougar signs include tracks, scat, scratches and cached (partially buried) prey.

Should you throw rocks at a cougar?

If looking bigger doesn't scare the mountain lion off, without crouching or turning your back, start throwing stones, branches, or whatever you can reach in its direction (e.g., toward it, but not directly at it). Aim for the ground in front of it; don't throw things directly at it just yet.
