These days on a safari in an Indian natural history book, engineering students discovered an extraordinarily rare and magnificent black leopard.
Last month, the massive feline was caught on camera sipping from a pond and chasing its prey near Radoba Book. The meeting was described as “a one-of-a-kind” and “like discovering a needle in a haystack.”
Melanism, which occurs when an additional black pigment is formed in the skin or hair as a result of a recessive gene mutation, is responsible for the creature’s dark coating.
Melanism is supposed to help predators by improving their camouflage in certain situations, allowing them to hunt more effectively.
Only 2,000 black leopards exist in the wild, with the majority living in Southeast Asia. Exotic woods give a lot of shade for these cats, which is useful.
We are amazed by how magnificent our planet is. It is so exciting that we find out rare and beautiful species of
animals every day.
