Because I have been found throughout the Americas, I have over 100 different names. Christopher Columbus spotted me on the beaches of Honduras and Nicaragua. I am a solitary creature. I can run up to 50 miles per hour. My favorite food is deer but I am the “most adaptive carnivore.” Habitat destruction, poaching and hunting has left only 30,000 of me in the wild, and only 50 of my relatives live in Florida.
