These Incredibly Rare Black Animals Actually Exist! Amazing!
If the world recognizes one all black animal, then it is the black panther.
Arising out of a phenomenon called Melanism, the panthera species is titled differently in different continents. For example - Panther in Asia, leopard in Africa and Jaguar in America.
Melanism in the jaguar (Panthera onca) is conferred by a dominant allele, and in the leopard (Panthera pardus) by a recessive allele
#6 Black Fawn Deer!
It may come as a surprise to most of you reading this, but genetic discoloration makes animals look better than humans - any day!
This black fawn deer for instance is a classic bait to Melanism and could probably be the only one different in the litter!
Black Fawn Deers are also seen to have a spotted or complete white tails, making them even cuter!
#5 Black Rat Snake!
Snakes are the most fascinating creatures on the planet and if you don't believe us, check out this black rat snake from Texas!
Also called the Black western snake, this particular creature is nonvenomous and belongs to a family of Colubridae. Thus it is not necessarily harmful to human beings, but if irked could bite like a b***h. Black rat snake may also have different colored family members - this happens due to genetic discoloration again!
#4 Black King Penguin!
Now this is rare!
This little penguin from Sub- Antartic island of South Georgia shot to fame in 2010 when a National Geographic reporter created a video of it. Amidst a pool of white, yellow and black bodies, this black penguin is a classic case of melanism.

The Black Lizards or the Cordylus niger is a medium sized lizard restricted to Table Mountain on the Cape Peninsula and a second, isolated population near Langebaan.

They are identified by their color, spiny and flat body.
#2 Black Squirrel!
A common sighting in North East America and UK, these black squirrels are the cutest black things around!
A melanistic group of the eastern grey squirrel and fox squirrel, they are a subject of genetic mutation. Mostly they are found to be extremely dark brown squirrels with black spottings, an all black squirrel is rare!
