Black Panther

A black panther is typically a melanistic color variant of any of several species of larger cat. In Latin America, wild 'black panthers' may be black jaguars (Panthera onca); in Asia and Africa, black leopards (Panthera pardus); in Asia, possibly the very rare black tigers (Panthera tigris); and in North America they may be black jaguars or possibly black cougars (Puma concolor – although this has not been proven to have a black variant), or smaller cats.

Captive black panthers may be black jaguars, or more commonly black leopards.

Famous quotes containing the word black:

    Magnified one thousand times, the insect
    Looks farcically human; laugh if you will!
    Bald head, stage-fairy wings, blear eyes,
    A caved-in chest, hairy black mandibles,
    Long spindly thighs.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)
