NO. While African Lions live primarily in the savannahs, Mountain Lions onced roamed from the Arctic Circle to Tierra del Fuego in the Americas.

African Lions are the second-largest of the big cats, right after the Tiger.

Mountain Lions are the second-heaviest cat in the Americas, right after the jaguar.

The Mountain Lion can spring thirty feet from a dead stop, and can reach 30 mph in 3 bounds.
