The Florida panther is a highly threatened representative of cougar (Puma concolor) that lives in the low tides, palm forests and swamps of southern Florida in the United States.

Its current taxonomic status (Puma concolor coryi or Puma concolor couguar) is unresolved. The Florida Panther is also known as the cougar, mountain lion, puma, and catamount.
Males weigh about 169 pounds and live within a range that includes the Big Cypress National Preserve, Everglades National Park, and the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. This population, the only unequivocal cougar representative in the eastern United States, currently occupies only 5% of its historic range. The number of living Florida panthers is estimated to be between 80 and 100.

In 1982, the Florida panther was chosen as the Florida state animal.

Southern Florida is a fast-developing area, and declining habitat threatens this species. The two highest causes of mortality for the Florida panthers are automobile injuries and aggression between panthers for territory. The primary threats to the population as a whole include habitat loss, habitat degradation, and habitat fragmentation.

    Awesome close up. I have one of these that hangs around behind my house at times, would love to get an image of it. It drives my dog Tucker nuts.

    I am a little concerned I have a Welsh Terrier and he is not frightened of any thing. He is trained to stay at the house with an electric collar other wise he would be up in the woods after it instead of running back and forth raising cane. I am relatively sure that is what gets him so upset on those nights. We have seen tracks and it has been sighted less that 1/8 mile from our house.
