FAKE: the top image is another fake of a melanistic fawn. The middle is the original image, and the bottom is showing a doe with a melanistic and a normal fawn. Since melanistic deer do exist (unlike melanistic lions and tigers) I find it mind-boggling that people feel the need to fake them.
In recent weeks, two very stunning black lion photographs have been circulating online. Why they attract such interest is that according to mainstream zoology, black lions simply do not exist. If they did, and were wholly black in colour, they would most probably be melanistic specimens; analogous if not homologous genetically with black panthers (melanistic leopards) and mutant all-black individuals of other felid species.
Black Lion Looks Amazing - Hmmm. I'm not sure but he looks Photoshopped. If there is a melanistic lion like this out there, I would be appropriately amazed and astounded. Not to mention entirely in love.
