Predators and Defense
Panthers are often threatened by Lions and Hyenas but Humans are the biggest threat to panthers. They are one of the fiercest animals in their habitats. Panthers are very defensive of their territory and feel threatened by larger or elder panthers. When a panther is threatened it will either fight or back down from a fight depending on the the size of the other panther.
The panther can move at a speed at 71mph. They can jump in trees and usually wait there until they see their prey. They can jump a height up to 8 meters.
The Black Panther is seen to be one of the most intelligent and ferocious predators in America. Panthers can also swim great distances. Panthers spend most of their time swimming and playing with other panthers. Panthers are nocturnal, so they hunt at night.
