Baby Florida Panthers are called kittens. These cats have 1-3 babies in a litter. Kittens have spots on their fur. They have blue eyes. After they grow up they live alone.


Florida Panthers are meat eaters. Meat eaters are also called carnivores. Their diet includes deer, wild hogs, raccoons, armadillos and alligators.
