Like a phantom in the night,the jet black Panther stalks his prey. A wondrous shimmering sight,he needs no light to seek his way.
100% proceeds to the W.W.F. The third in my big cat paintings to hopefully help save these beautiful creatures from extinction.
A black panther is typically a melanistic color variant of any of several species of larger cat. In the Americas, wild 'black panthers' may be black jaguars (Panthera onca), while in Asia and Africa, black leopards (Panthera pardus); in Asia, possibly the very rare black tigers (Panthera tigris). Smaller wild cats, like jaguarundi, may also be black.
Captive black panthers may be black jaguars, or more commonly black leopards.
