Wearing the shadow by woxys Wearing the shadow by woxys
Black form of a leopard (no idea which subspecies, sorry :( if you know for sure, let me know, please. Two black guys, male and a female, stayed close to Javan leopards, but had only "black leopard (panthera pardus" sign on their cage...) from Tierpark Friedrichsfelde Berlin, Germany.

It is VERY difficult to take photos of them because of the double fence and stupid exhibit which is boring and with a brick wall in the background. Cats are dark and the cage (yes, they live in a cage :|) is also quite dark, which is not anything good for a camera. The animals were moving a lot - I do not know how I managed to capture this, but I am pretty proud of it :D

Black leopards? I heard of black panthers... See?! This is why Animal Planet should stay dealing with animals than freaking humans hunting animals and other human doing something with animals than talking about them -_- I would be still learning about these animals than those stuff.

black panther is a name or nickname people give to black mutation of big cats (black jaguars, black leopards :)).

I heard that a black panther is just a black cougar (from a book). Though, I see what you mean there :)

well, cougars are NEVER black ;D it is just a myth :D I know that if you search "black cougar" through Google, you get many photos of black cats, but those are all black jaguars and black leopards, just with wrong description :)

He/she is a predator. Natures way of culling herbivores that if left unchecked could devastate their natural environment. The look in the eyes is nature at work and pure beauty. He is an animal to be respected. :)

The watermark makes it look like there are two lines imprinted in the leopard's head fur; other than that, the photo is amazing!
