Extremely Rare Black Leopard or panther Captured on Camera in Kenya
Rare black leopards were seen in Laikipia County, Kenya on remote camera footage belonging to San Diego Zoo Global over the past year.
Video shared by the organisation shows a male and a female specimen of the melanistic leopard.
The findings delight researchers and enthusiasts. "Regionally we've heard reports of black leopards living here in Kenya, but high-quality footage or imagery to support these observations has always been missing," said Nicholas Pilfold, Ph.D., San Diego Zoo Global scientist.
