The Original Florida Panther Was Black — 2 Comments

  1. So true, saw a black panther in 1985 off Alligator Alley…the USA gov has even brought scrawny tawny panthers from Texas more recently than 1950-60, they are pathetic compared to the black panther which was not in danger of extinction, but did suffer from a narrow gene pool…

    The gene pool issue could be solved with better breeding management, but it was cheaper to bring in faun Texas Panthers, leading to possibly real extinction…

    The only hope is there are still sightings of black Panthers in Florida and other parts of the USA to this decade.
