Have You Seen Me?

The Florida Panther that lives in the woods next door to us has been observed roaming the neighborhood recently. Please use caution when walking at night, and make sure all pets are secure. So you can recognize it – Florida Panthers are spotted at birth and typically have blue eyes. As the panther grows the spots fade and the coat becomes completely tan while the eyes typically become more of a yellow. The panther’s underbelly is a creamy white, with black tips on the tail and ears. Florida panthers lack the ability to roar, and instead make many distinct sounds that include whistles, chirps, growls, hisses, and purrs. It continues to be one of the most intensively and expensively protected felines, mostly because there are only about 80-100 left.
