The Friends of the Everglades shared the awesome video below. It shows a large Florida panther walking down a path within Everglades National Park.

The Florida panther is a subspecies of the North American mountain lion. They are distinguished from other subspecies by their crooked tails, and the unique ‘cowlick’ patch on their backs.

Florida panthers are about 6 to 7 feet long, and weigh up to 161 pounds. The species is still considered endangered despite a growing population. There is estimated to be roughly 200 Florida panthers alive in the wild today.
