A rare black leopard photographed for the first time in 100 years


British photographer Will Burrard Lucas managed to shoot a rare black leopard in Kenya, Africa. The black leopard is a male who travels with larger leopards.

The black color of the fur is a result of a process contrary to albinism, characteristic of the dark pigmentation. This is the first time a black leopard has been photographed in Africa for 100 years, according to National Geographic.

For the Daily Mail, the photographer said this is the fulfillment of his dreams, to shoot such a rare creature.

Photographed with a Camtraptions camera trap. Laikipia Wilderness Camp, Kenya.

Black leopards are slightly smaller than those of normal color, and the black color of the fur is inherited. Black leopard in nature can be seen in China, Myanmar, Nepal, southern India, Java and Africa.
