Black panthers look extremely majestic due to their jet black fur. Since they are rare, any sighting makes for an avid discussion for wildlife enthusiasts. Well, here is another such chance for you.
IPS Diapnshu Kabra posted a photograph of the royal-looking beast on Twitter. Based on his post, the picture was clicked in
Achanak Marg Tiger reserve forest in Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh. He claimed that the cameras which were installed to keep a count on the tigers in the area managed to click the black panther.
IFS Parveen Kaswan who is famous for sharing and posting wildlife-related information on Twitter also commented on the post saying, ‘Wherever we have common leopard we can have black panther. One was sighted in Darjeeling also.’
The picture instantly brings the name ‘Bagheera’ to our minds and apparently, villagers from around the area have given the same name to the animal in the picture.
People couldn’t help but express their delight at seeing the magnificent creature in its natural habitat. Most of the comments were in reference to the Jungle Book name that the animal has received.

Earlier this month, a black panther was caught on camera in Goa as well, apparently for the first time. Chief Minister Pramod Sawant had taken to Twitter to share the good news with everyone by informing that the animal was found in Patiem beat of Netravali wildlife sanctuary.
