the black leopard

I'm loving this post guys! Thanks. Some good pics to go with those videos too.

You're right Hilal - the black cat seen above is not a black tiger as the daily mirror claims. It is known as a 'melanistic leopard'. Simply means black leopard. There are also well documented cases of currently living melanistic jaguars as melanistic leopards. Together, the melanistic variants of the leopard and jaguar are also commonly known as 'black panthers'.
