The Black panther is a rare, fearless, powerful and intelligent animal. It is one of the most aggressive and most feared animals in the world. The black panther is not a distinct animal species though. The term black panther is commonly used for one or several kinds of closely related all-black big cats.
Endangered Black Panther:
Although black panthers can adapt well to different environments and habitats, they are in danger. Their population is shrinking along with their habitats. Human beings are the biggest threat to the survival of black panthers. The environmental changes, which cause the loss and deterioration of natural habitats for black panthers, are also a big threat to black panthers.
The U.S. Endangered Species Act has listed leopards on the African continent as “Threatened” (South Africa) and “Endangered” (the rest of Africa and Middle East & Asia). CITES, the agency that classifies species internationally, has listed the leopard as “vulnerable”. In the 1970s, all leopards were listed as vulnerable by the World Conservation Union (IUCN), and international trade in leopard was prohibited.
