Cool Cats and Fine Felines.

Fun facts, as discovered by Black Bob and I during lunch today:

There is no such animal called a "panther".
The feline genus "panthera" includes lions, tigers, leopards and jaguars.

Usage of the word:
A "Panther" is a leopard in Africa and Asia.
A "Panther" is a Puma/Cougar/Catamount in N.America.

Additionally, the Puma, the Cougar and the Catamount are different names for the same one animal.
