An endangered Florida panther decided a home’s front porch was a nice place to hang out for a while.

Phil Hendra was at his father’s house in East Fort Myers, Florida on March 18th when he took this photo of the rare big cat.

“It stayed for about 20 minutes and laid down for a bit,” said Hendra.

“It looked at us inside the window then slowly walked away and we have not seen it since. My parents have lived here since 1988 and they may have seen a younger panther about two years ago, but nothing compares to this once in a lifetime experience.”
