The opposite of albinism called melanism, a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black. This is perhaps the most beautiful lion I have ever seen.

Jaguar ~ by: Josef Gelernter. Jaguars with melanism appear entirely black, but their spots are visible. Black melanism affects about 6% of the population, well above the rate of mutation. Melanistic jaguars are informally known as black panthers, but (as with all forms of polymorphism) they do not form a separate species.
