Chutz wow a fun topic! Thank You!
Black Leopard (Panther) is my favorite zoo animal. Black Leopards are rare in color, unlike the cute kitty cat where the black gene dominates,
in the wild cats (leopards) the black gene is not the dominating gene. The black leopard (panther) is a sleek, ferocious animal that should be left alone by man.
It's now a protected species. No one should own this type cat as pet as its swift hunting machine and kills.
Not many zoo's have a black leopard (panther), I saw one at a zoo, it was awesome to say the least.
It's not a cat I'd want to come face to face with! I'm just glad I can own a little kitty cat and yes it's all black....

My Fav zoo animal is a black leopard, dont know why but have always thought them to be reagal and majastic.
 
Here is my stange fact
 
It is a myth that black leopards are often rejected by their mothers at an early age because of their color. In actuality, poor temperament has been bred into the captive strains as a side-effect of inbreeding and it is this poor temperament that leads to problems of maternal care in captivityeres my stange fact.
 
I really like your check in questions Chutz, nice to look into things are just to dream and excape.  Wonderful idea!
 
Wishing you all a great weekend and a pain free day/days

My favorite would have to be the Bangle Tiger they reach up to 660 pounds and are quite territorial. Being as though they are orange with black stripes on their bodies they of course cannot be missed out there in the India plains. Saw my first one at the Denver zoo long ago and totally fell in love with this big cat.

Great information! I have to say I love the penguins..all of them. Hubby and I have quite a collection of penguins from 1" to 6' tall...lol We started because he's a hockey fan who was born in Pittsburgh...their hockey team is the Penguins. He even put special plates on my truck "PENGWN1". Boy do I get questions.

Anyway, here are a few new things I learned while searching...

The name is derived from Welsh terms ‘pen’, meaning head and ‘gwyn’, meaning white.

They are ancient species that appeared 40 million years ago in the Eocene.

The fairy penguin is the smallest and is 16 inches tall and weighs 2.2 pounds. The largest is the emperor penguin which is 3.7 feet tall and weighs 60 to 90 pounds.

But my favorite fact is that Penguins do NOT live at the north pole. Probably everyone knows that already. Then why do we see pictures of polar bears and penguins together all of the time. Polar bears ONLY live in the Northern hemisphere, while penguins ONLY live in the Southern hemisphere (except for the magelanic penguins near the equator). ...lol Guess the cartoonists started it cause they're both pretty cute.

And I love a guy in a TUX!...lol
