In a fight between a male and female cougar, who wins? When it comes to Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, it appears to be a draw.

Two months after Lopez first stepped out with 24-year-old dancer Casper Smart, her ex-husband has debuted his new flame, Venezuelan model Shannon De Lima, also 24.

Yesterday Anthony posted a photo of himself tightly hugging and kissing the brunette beauty with the caption "gracias!" beneath it. The 43-year-old singer also tweeted a message in Spanish to his new girlfriend, translated as, "To Shannon, my statue of liberty. Kisses baby!"

Anthony appears to be making up for lost time, considering Lopez first debuted her new boy toy in November, only four months after the couple split. The 42-year-old "American Idol" judge and Smart were first photographed getting cozy in Hawaii over Thanksgiving weekend. More recently, the two reportedly spent New Year's together in Miami along with her three-year-old twins from her marriage to Anthony.

But it's not all sunshine and kisses for them. Smart was sentenced to one year of probation on Tuesday for drag racing in April 2010. On second thought, maybe Anthony wins this round.
