Wild Black Panthers Family in Latin America

A black panther is generally a melanistic colour variant of any of various species of larger cat. Wild black panthers in Latin America are black jaguars ( Panthera onca ), in Asia and Africa country they are black leopards ( Panthera pardus ), and in North America they may be black jaguars or perhaps black cougars ( Puma concolor – although this has not been proven to have a black variant), or smaller cats.

The name “panther” is often limited to the black versions of the species, but also ordinarily refers to those that are normal-colour (tawny or spotted), or to white colour variants: white panthers.
