Florida panthers are fast and lean. They can weigh up to
150 pounds and are about three feet long.
Panthers only eat meat. They may eat only once a week. They
sleep as much as 18 hours a day.
They usually hunt alone at sunrise and sunset.
They will cover what they don't eat with twigs and leaves
to hide food from other animals.
Since 1972, cars have hit and killed 44 Florida panthers.
