Nickie was first photographed on April 30, 2012.  The nicks in her ears make it possible to identify her.  Tattered ears are very common in male panthers, resulting from fights with other males.  They are not as common in female panthers. Nickie has raised atlas five kittens in two litters at The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.

Nickie is probably March’s daughter since they share part of the same territory. They both had kittens at Corkscrew at the same time. Nickie’s kittens were several months older than March’s.
