5 Florida Panthers Photographed Together


The Florida Panther is elusive, shy, and endangered, but a Florida man, spotted five of them in a single day and four at the same time!

Ezra Van a photographer and videographer from Miami Beach, had been tracking Florida Panthers in the wild at the Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve Park in the Everglades, and he spotted one.

He was barely able to get a picture of it, and waited patiently for a few hours for the panther to return. Done for the day, he started to leave, when in the middle of the road he saw a Florida panther chasing a Turkey Vulture. Moments later three more joined it and four panthers sat on the grass for a while before retreating into the Everglades.

There are only about 120-230 adult Florida panthers left in the wild, making them one of the rarest and endangered mammals in the world.

Rare indeed.
