A woman aged 40 and up, single or married, who may appear to be younger then she actually is. They enjoys the sexual company of younger men. They are more willing than younger women to have casual sex or one-night stands due to their fertility decline and the approach of menopause. Hunting grounds are any social event where younger males are present. They require constant compliments and flattery due to low self esteem. Not wanting to grow up, they struggle with a constant mental battle; they keep denying the inevitable fade of there beauty due to aging rather than accepting it as a natural state of being. With the physically fight against aging they use vitamins, supplementation products, anti-aging products, cosmetics, and going to the gym. The art of illusion is also a tool they use; attractive or revealing clothing, form altering clothing, and they use a general sense of fashion. In general, this constant shallow focus on outer beauty has left the cougars inner beauty damaged, weak, or nonexistent.

Older woman, generally mid-30's or above, who attempts to sleep with younger men. Cougars are generally skanky and promiscuous, and therefore likely to have STD's. Their predation is generally due to their inability to secure a permanent relationship with a man their own age (or older), and generally reflects a form of desperation, premised on the usually vain hope that the horny, indiscriminate nature of the younger male will lead to at least temporary companionship. Known for animal prints, heavy makeup, emaciation and/or obesity, and a deluded view of self.

Not to be confused with a MILF, who is an attractive, genuine, healthy, well-preserved older woman over 30 (or 40) who younger men genuinely want to be with. The key difference is that the cougar pursues younger men, generally unsuccessfully, while the MILF is actively desired by men of all ages, but is more likely to already be in a committed relationship, due to her appeal.
That drunk cougar has been all over me all night, and won't leave me alone. Wish that MILF or her hot daughter would step in and run interference for me.

A woman in her 40s or 50s who sexually "preys" on males under 25. This behaviour is often touted as "empowering" and "role-reversal" by feminist pundits, but probably the role "reversed" is either best described as a stereotypcal male "mid-life crisis" relationships, if not actual pedophilia, depending on the age of the "prey".
The fan outfit "Twilight moms" are a good example of this behaviour - certainly, if mobs of 40 and 50 year old men collected to scream at teenage girls, this would probably be viewed as not just unseemly, but possibly criminal behaviour by the cougar group.

A cougar's not necessarily an older woman chasing younger men - she could be as young as 25 and be on the lookout for bald dudes in their late 30s or black dudes of any age, a so-called nouveau cougar. Signs of cougarism are: cougar lips (exessively red), cleavage, animal print clothing (particulary headbands or sun visors), black power hairdo or badly died shakira hair. The cougar typically sips at either red wine, gin tonic or whisky, and sits on a bar stool from which she takes a flying leap at her cock of choice.
Why does your friend dress like that?

She wants to be a cougar!

A sexual predator, typically one with pedophiliac tendencies. Gender is no discrimination with a "cougar," as they will take either. A cougar is usually emo and full of hate for the world.
Oh man, did you hear about that cougar who raped that 14 year old girl last week? I hope he goes to jail! He is like 25 and still lives with his parents!
