Florida Panther

Population: ca. 230 in the wild
Status: Critically endangered

"The Florida panther is an endangered population of cougar (Puma concolor) that lives in forests and swamps of southern Florida in the United States.This panther has a natural predator, the alligator. Humans also threaten it through poaching and wildlife control measures. Besides predation, the biggest threat to their survival is human encroachment. Historical persecution reduced this wide-ranging, large carnivore to a small area of south Florida. This created a tiny isolated population that became inbred (revealed by kinked tails, heart, and sperm problems)."

I decided to dedicate this years inktober mostly to endangered, extinct or enslaved animal species. In November I'll sell some of the originals to raise money for local animal shelters. <3

Cougar nennt man doch auch reifere Frauen, die jüngere Männer jagen. Die sind in Florida aber sicher nicht gefährdet...
