The fuck is he doing there. Clearly it’s a place for Tigers.
Excellent observation, this leopard is indeed... Spotted.
I believe the correct term is "Leopard of colour".

Fun black panthers are actually leopards that are black spots on black fur, and you can see the spots if the sun hits them just right.
I hope no one kills it.
Looked like a cave painting from the thumbnail
I think it's a normal leopard that tried to change the toner in the copier.
Is this a species or a genetic mutation? Cuz it looks fucking sick!
The spotted leapard is spotted.
Oh, you mean a panther.
I wish him the best of luck.
This is nothing new. All leopards are spotted./s
Ha ha, spotted
Please dont kill it please dont kill it please dont kill it
Bagheera checking on Shere Kahn's activities.
"black leopard spotted" - well, I guess it is, now that I look at it.
Does he have any wares for sale?
Lol! He was 'spotted' in the tiger reserve.
Man, that is a really pretty animal.
TIL: black leopards exist.
Wow, that’s beautiful.
The Highly Melinated
What an absolutely beautiful animal
That's a long tail
Coal mining leopard just got off. Stay off my case
Omg its so mesmerizing!
I thought it was one of those caveman drawings on rock at first glance
More detail here:
My eyes couldn't even tell what the background was because of the crazy contrast.
It looks like it is moving when I slowly shake my phone sideways.
Is that a panther? Aren't black leopards panthers? I am confused. Why can't we just divide them into Dangerous Cats and Cute Cats? Life could be so easy.
(what you did there) 👁👁
I bet he's spotted everywhere
This one could have made its way to Tadoba from the Umred Karhandla reserve. He has a regular looking brother too.
Probably shouldn't have poster which reserve it was in.....
Isn’t Melanism awesome
One of the coolest shinies we have on Earth
Thats one cool cat
Extra M E L A N I N
So cute good lord
That would make a wicked wall print
So beautiful. So, so beautiful.
That is so cool
So is a panther something different then
I wonder if camera operators ever get busted filming an animal and have a primal "oh shit it's looking right at me" moment
Does it know how dark it appears compared to it's environment? I imagine a leopard would try to stay camouflage in the grass when hunting, but this leopard would stick out like a sore thumb in that situation. So would it know to hunt in areas that help it blend in?
That looks like a drawing
It looks like it has seen shit. Some burning shit.q
That’s just dirty Larry
I'm sure now that all world has seen it on a picture and knows where it is some hunters already measure their perfect handbag size for them!(I don't know what illegal hunters that kill animals in reserves are called)
send the poachers to the exact location why don't ya
I bet you can't hear it's footsteps 😀😂
That shit was annoying as fuck to find in far cry
Is this considered bad luck?
Heh. Rare leopard spotted Must be spotted rarely.
The melanistic leopard is a color variant of the Indian leopard, which is rich in melanism that is the development of the dark-colored pigment melanin in the skin.
Crikey! This guys off the Richter scale!
If it’s a black leopard then wouldn’t it just be a panther?
Don’t tell people where it’s located. Some asshole poacher will go kill it.
I read this as rare black tiger found. Not black leopard. Leopards tend towards being melanistic and as such not that unusual.
Black Tigers for life!
Hope he doesn't get hunted down for his fur.
I need 2 kill one in fc primal
noice...show that to a rich big game hunter and they will try to "conserve" it by blowing its head off
Tracker the red wolf close behind...
annddd it's gone.
Nature: Hey, guys, check out this new shade of leopard I made!
Humans: I bet I can kill that before you do.
That's like a mixed color. I've actually seen a Black leopard once. It was more black than this one. It was like a genetically engineered night assassin. I was bicycling near khol hi wildlife sanctuary and spotted it lying all 4 legs down the branch resting on its belly on a tree branch. Looked so serene and calm.
Was kinda small tho so I think might've been a female but I only have 1 eye and had no binoculars so my perception of size might be wrong
No its just a leopard that fell into some black paint thats all. Edit: This is a joke, dont correct me.
I can't wait to spend my life working towards helping these animals and others. Seeing pictures like this fuels my passion for animals
Black leopards are rare because they kill each other.
Panther = Black jaguar
????? = Black leopard
what a creature......filled with horror to anyone...still needs to be reserved because of humans
Would this make hunting more difficult? Normal leopards would have a much easier time blending in with the environment rather than this bad boi
