The panthers are the largest felines at the Tallahassee Museum. They are tawny brown along their back an a lighter almost white color on the belly. Panthers are known to vocalize with very high pitched sounds. Many who hear the noise compare it to the sounds of a woman screaming. Although many claim there is a black panther, there is no evidence to support this. Those who claim to have seen one usually were looking at a jaguar.
