Lazy Black Panther by Charlie Burlingame A black panther is typically a melanistic color variant of any Panthera species. Black panthers in Asia and Africa are leopards (Panthera pardus). Black panthers in the Americas are black jaguars (Panthera onca)
This pic is real. A polar bear came for multiple days to play with the dogs of a sled team. When the bear first arrived the owner of the dogs thought they were goners. Never once did the bear harm the dogs.
