      A rare black lion. My understanding is that almost all large cats have a recessive black, or melanistic, trait. That's why you have black panthers, which are usually melanistic leopards or sometimes melanistic tigers. It is also why there are black jaguars, as opposed to those with spotted coats. The melanistic trait in lions is simply more rare than in other types of large cats. - Looks like scar from the lion king

    A reminder to Victorian and New South Wales pinners that daylight savings starts TONIGHT at 2 am - clocks go forward an hour. Its such a yawn....

    I just cried my eyes out. Literally. I was hanging out playing video games and I had to leave the room. THIS is why I love animals so much, and have a tattoo on my foot that says "Always faithful, Always loved" I also cried. Beautiful, I will greet beasts in Heaven this way!

    I can't wait till paradise! When we are able to wrestle and care for these intimidating beasts :..) (si Dios quiere)

    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.
