Uruguay 1-PESO (KM30) Puma

The puma (Puma concolor) goes by many different names, including cougar, mountain lion, and panther. All the same thing, apparently, except "panther" also refers to other cats that are not pumas. According to Wikipedia, most scientists refer to it as a puma (which makes sense, since that is its genus name). Also, puma is the common name in 21 of 23 countries in the Americas.

This the second denomination the walking puma design appears on. The coin was minted one year only.
