look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
1. The puma is a type of big cat found in the Americas. Also known as a cougar, mountain lion, panther, catamount, or painted cat.

2. A connotation may be:
"A hott girl between the age of 25-35, 35-45 is a cougar"

I simply don't understand this. Puma and cougar are the exact same animal, so why is it two seperate age groups? Jesus people.
1a. "I jus' dun gone shot that thar puma. Right after it ate my gran'babies and raped my six wives."

1b. "Pumas are very interesting animals, but sometimes threaten modern civilization by not staying in the wild."

2. "Wow, look at those two sweltering cougars over therel!"
"No, Jeremiah, those are PUMAS."
"What the HELL is the difference?!"

A woman who is not quite old enough to be a cougar, but still likes to date/mate with younger men.
Dating a puma wasn't so bad, Bob reflected. After all, the sex was great and she never minded picking up the tab when they went out on the weekend.

A woman in her sexual prime between the ages of 30-39 who prefers to date younger men. The term "puma" does not apply to women before their 30s, and should never be confused with the titles "Cougar" (ages 40-49) and "Jaguar" (ages 50+).
When Megan Fox becomes a puma, she'll probably look like a jaguar.
