Mysuru: A black leopard was captured in a camera trap installed at the PG Palya range of MM Hills Wildlife Sanctuary.


Black Panther is the black variant of the spotted leopards and there are only 5 to 6 black panthers in India and among them, only one is residing at Kabini wildlife sanctuary.

But, very recently a camera trap had captured an image of a black leopard moving in front of it at the BRT tiger reserve and now at MM Hills Wildlife Sanctuary, bringing cheers to the face of wildlife enthusiasts in the region.

However, the Forest officials are still not sure if the black leopard is the same which was spotted at BRT, but predict that the big cat might be of six or seven years of age.
