Cougars are slender and agile members of the Cat Family. They are the fourth-largest cat species worldwide; adults stand about 60 to 90 cm (24 to 35 in) tall at the shoulders. Adult males are around 2. 4 m (7. 9 ft) long from nose to tail tip, and females average 2. 05 m (6. 7 ft), with overall ranges between 1. 50 to 2. 75 m (4. 9 to 9. 0 ft) nose to tail suggested for the species in general. Of this length, the tail typically accounts for 63 to 95 cm (25 to 37 in). Males generally weigh 53 to 100 kg (117 to 220 lb), averaging 62 kg (137 lb). Females typically weigh between 29 and 64 kg (64 and 141 lb), averaging 42 kg (93 lb). Cougar size is smallest close to the equator and larger towards the poles. The largest recorded cougar, shot in 1901, weighed 105. 2 kg (232 lb); claims of 125. 2 kg (276 lb) and 118 kg (260 lb) have been reported, though they were most likely exaggerated. On average, adult male cougars in British Columbia weigh 56. 7 kg (125 lb) and adult females 45. 4 kg (100 lb), though several male cougars in British Columbia weighed between 86. 4 and 95. 5 kg (190 and 211 lb).
