Technically, panthers are not an individual species. It is a mutation amongst big cats in the Panthera genus (leopards, tigers, lions and jaguars) that causes them to be mostly black. It is most common in leopards and jaguars, which is why spots can be visible.
I suggest you do more research next time. =)

That sounded rude when I read it ...
LifeIsZealous Featured By Owner May 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Not at all. At least, that's not my intention.
LittleEbony Featured By Owner May 27, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Alright then :) No hard feelings :)
WishmasterAlchemist Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Where do I say that they're an individual species?
LifeIsZealous Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
In the credits section, you have listed a leopard as a black panther, when in fact it is just a black leopard.
But I did not comment to criticise, only to inform. =) Most people don't realise that the panther is in fact a genus, not a species.
WishmasterAlchemist Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
As the commonly called black panthers are usually either melanistic jaguars or melanistic leopards, it was meant to make known that the image I used is one of a leopard (Panthera pardus) with that color variant.
I thought it was common knowledge that black panthers are melanistic mutations and not a separate felid species, but I guess I can add a bit of information to the description :)
LifeIsZealous Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Most people I've come across don't know that. =) I was just making sure.

DID you know that Black Panthers aren't actually black! Cause if you look VERY carefully at a black panther under sunlight you can actually see that it is brown and has spots. Like here [link]

They have spots because they're leopards and jaguars. xD
