Florida panther

By rgg
Taken at the Davie animal refuge.
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 take on a yellow hue. 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 distinct sounds that include whistles, chirps, growls, hisses, and purrs. Florida panthers are mid-sized for the species, being smaller than cougars from Northern and Southern climes but larger than cougars from the neotropics. Adult female Florida panthers weigh 2945.5 kg (64100 lb) whereas the larger males weigh 45.572 kg (100159 lb). Total length is from 1.8 to 2.2 m (5.9 to 7.2 ft) and shoulder height is 6070 cm (2428 in).[8][9] Male panthers, on average, are 9.4% longer and 33.2% heavier than females. This is because males grow at a faster rate than females and for a longer amount of time.
