Florida Panther, Puma, Cougar, Catamount, Painter, Screamer, Mountain Lion…all describe the same impressive cat. The largest of the purring cats, Felis Concolor can vocalize on both the inhale and the exhale.
Commonly known locally as the Florida Panther, this cat is actually not of the panthera species (leopards, jaguars & tigers) which only vocalize on the exhale.
They also come only in the tan color you see exhibited by Cimarron. There is no “Black Panther” as any black cat would be either a leopard or a jaguar. Born in captivity, Cimarron’s life started out with a lot of attention. He was played with roughly and as he grew their method of control at the facility was to hit him over the head with a lead pipe.
