FTFA: Biologists estimate the female panther became pregnant about three weeks after her release, when she was only 21 months old. That age is somewhat younger than the typical age of first conception for female panthers the FWC has documented.

Hello, Mr. Panther.  Why don't you have a seat over there?

I disagree. That is a panther cub with a very punchable face. That guy should teach the cub an important lesson about life really early on and just sucker-punch the crap out of the fuggo.

The kittens are only about the size of a typical housecat. And you know, they're not dumb. If they know and like you, they won't hurt you.

Of course, if you pelt them with peanuts at the zoo, they climb out, hunt you down, and kill you. You specifically, not just whoever is nearby.

And cats have great memories, and can really hold a grudge. I'm not sure what point I'm trying to make here. Don't piss off the best predators evolution has manged to come up with seems like a rather obvious moral.

If you aren't supposed to pelt them with peanuts, why would the be stuck in cages right next to the guy SELLING you peanuts?!

That's just some foolish logic, right there.

Next you're gonna tell me seals shouldn't have ice cream bars shaped like Shamu pegged at them or the bendy-straw squeeze bottles aren't sold for the sole purpose of hosing down unsuspecting kangaroos.

The Panther

The panther is like a leopard,
Except it hasn't been peppered.
Should you behold a panther crouch,
Prepare to say Ouch.
Better yet, if called by a panther,
Don't anther.

Its not a true panther.  Panthers and Jaguars are black, Florida Panthers are a subspecies of the mountain lion, but they can't really call them Mount Dora Panthers.

DirtyDeadGhostofEbenezerCooke: cptjeff: Don't piss off the best predators, (after humans, viruses and bacteria,) evolution has manged to come up with seems like a rather obvious moral.

Right?


Humans are only kind of predators, and without significant mechanical aid, we lose to a lion every farking time, and even with mechanical aid, we still have a pretty good chance of getting mauled. Even if you do call humans predators, we are not an apex predator biologically. Big cats are, and they're pretty damn good at apex predatoring. I also wouldn't call what most bacteria and viruses do predation. Some, like amoebas, do, but a tiger is a little more perfect a killing machine. You might classify what a virus or bacteria does as any of parasitism, grazing, or parasitoidism, but true predation it ain't.

Parasitism on the virus and bacteria; maybe.  If you are just talking about one-on-one large land animals, a tiger or lion vs. a grizzly bear or a polar bear might not be any kind of walkover.  I think culture is an evolved attribute and counts, too.  A mated pair or a pride or a pack or a troop or a human hunting group is more lethal than single animals, and for humans, weapons are part of that culture.  No, I don't think an unarmed human is going to win versus a tiger.  But humans versus tigers or chimpanzees or any other large predator up to and including whales, has proven to be a mismatch for the non-humans.

I'll count culture to some extent, (and lions do hunt in prides on occasion), but I don't count complex tools.

As for bears, the bear has more power, but most of them eat diets consisting of mainly of plants and grub- the polar bear being the exception (along with the polar-grizzly hybrids that are beginning to happen thanks to global warming, combining the grizzly's range with the polar bear's all meat diet), and they still mostly eat things a lot smaller than themselves. Big cats are a lot faster. A few big cats acting in concert (as some do) could bring down a healthy bear, but a bear could never catch a healthy large cat that wanted to avoid the confrontation. Mostly though, big cats and bears leave each other alone, but the kitties tend to kill things like deer, while the bears kill things like salmon. Though there are big cat species in South Asia that do that too.

Seriously, in just about every terrestrial ecosystem wherever you find prey (Australia is just off doing its own thing, though the standard British shorthair is trying to change that), you find some variation of cat as the peak predator. There's a very good reason for that.

Just_a_Bear: I thought panthers were black.  Or am I thinking of jaguars?


Panther (for a cougar) is a hideous misnomer. Panthers are actually the same species as leopards (panthera pardus), which can be black sometimes - even within the same family.
i6.photobucket.com

 Jaguars (panthera onca) look like leopards (but live instead in the Americas) and can also be black.

Cougars or pumas (puma concolor) don't even belong to the panthera genus, which are the big cats, including lions and tigers, who have the ability to roar. Pumas can't. So what by some are called "panthers" or "mountain lions" are neither panthers nor lions.

/that 'other' use of the word cougar is also a terrible choice: the animal is actually reclusive and very shy (and very, very cute - even the adults)
//only worse named animal is guinea pig for cavia

Same here.  Mountain lion sightings are very common where my family lives (around Lake Tahoe).  Everyone has dogs that roam their forest cul-de-sac neighborhood in a pack as deterrents and it seems to be helpful but I am still very wary when I'm up there.

Have you seen this?  I find it incredibly charming.
