Not only black panthers but various other melanistic (much blacker than normal) animals also exist that we aren’t aware of. We have made a list of such rare creatures, read it and boost your knowledge in this domain. There’s a little surprise element in the end for you.
1. Black Panthers
A black panther is basically a variant of any of several species of larger cat. In Latin America, wild black panthers are known as black jaguars (Panthera onca) and black leopards (Panthera pardus) in the Asian and African region.
2. Black Rat Snake
3. Black Fawn Deer
Black Fawn Deer are rare to find anywhere, but the area around Austin, Texas is a hot spot for such species!
4. Black Wolf
Black Wolf is a variant of the gray wolf (Canis lupus). If you don’t consider their coat colour, they are normal gray wolves.
5. Black King Penguin
Black King Penguin is found near Antarctica but it is so rare that it is described as a “one-in-a-zillion kind of mutation.”
6. Black Red Fox
7. Black Lizards
8. Black Seal
Black Seal belongs to a diverse group of semi-aquatic marine mammals, many of which are commonly called seals.
