Voodoo came from a guy who brought him to us when there were fires in Big Bear a few years ago. He was also in the entertainment industry; he did photoshoots and commercials. A black leopard commonly referred to as a black panther. However, Panther is just another name for the genus of big cats (panthera); they are regular leopards that just have an excess of melanin, a pigment that gives the black color. They still have markings of a regular leopard when shone correctly in the sun. They have been selectively bred for decades in zoos and exotic pet trade.
