A rare black lion. My understanding is that almost all large cats have a recessive black, or melanistic, trait. Thats 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. animals wildanimals endangered cuteanimalsMike Arroyo
