    Hi! I just saw a large cat, not a house cat, run across highway 98 near the seaside area. At first I thought it was a coyote, but I'm sure, on second glance it was some sort of cat. What could it have been?

    Bobcat is the most likely suspect. They're fairly common in Florida.

    If it's near Seaside there's always a chance it's a cougar.

    I think it was a python in a cat suit.

    Not bobcat. It had a very long tail. I swear I wasn't drinking!

    Sounds like a fox, coyote or a really fat raccoon. We do have some exceptionally large raccoons here.

    I have seen a jaguarundi in that same area for years. Smaller than a panther, longer tail than a bobcat, a dark brown color....

    Gosh, I hope this isn't the start of a bobcat-nado.
