Florida panthers do not roar, but they do make sounds. These include chirps, peeps, whistles, moans, screams, growls, hisses and (like domestic cats), purrs. The Florida panther is the last subspecies of Puma still surviving in the eastern United States. Only about 100 of these rare creatures remain in the wild.
Black Bears don’t fully hibernate during the winter, and sometimes wake up if disturbed. More than 90% of adult bear deaths are due to hunting, accidental motor vehicle hits and conflict with humans.
