A 2-year old Florida Panther was recently released into the wild after being found with his sister as kitten when they were just five months old.

Spring is only about three weeks away, and with the upcoming warm season, you may begin to notice the sights and sounds of alligators more than usual. April marks the beginning of alligator mating season, though i don’t think the gators are exactly marking their calendar.
