Very dark Florida panther sighted.
On November 9th at 3:00 pm, park visitor Judith Haseitel was lucky enough to see a critically endangered Florida Panther while driving through Everglades National Park.
The photos make it look unusually dark. But there has never been a documented melanistic puma/cougar. Therefore, it’s more likely that it looks deceptively dark due to the backlighting. You can see this in one picture where it is facing the camera. It does not look overly dark. Florida panthers are rarely sighted.
