Reuters – Rare black leopards were seen in Laikipia County, Kenya on remote camera footage belonging to San Diego Zoo Global over the past year.

Video shared by the organisation shows a male and a female specimen of the melanistic leopard.

The findings delight researchers and enthusiasts. “Regionally we’ve heard reports of black leopards living here in Kenya, but high-quality footage or imagery to support these observations has always been missing,” said Nicholas Pilfold, Ph.D., San Diego Zoo Global scientist.
