A partial skeleton including fragmental skull and mandibles of the puma, Felis concolor, was recovered from Svendsen Cave, Marion County, Arkansas. The remains are thought to be of Late Pleistocene (Wisconsin) or Sub-recent age. Fossil records of the puma are rare and only one other Pleistocene or Sub-recent site in Arkansas, Conard Fissure, has yielded remains which could be assigned to this large felid.
