We occasionally produce melanistic kittens, they look like little Black Panthers with shadow rosettes showing through their shiny black pelts. Just as the wild Black Panther is actually a ‘melanistic’ Leopard, these black kittens are the melanistic version of the Bengal.
This very special little girl pictured at 4 weeks old then as an adult, is from Silverstorm Midnight in the Jungle and Jungletime Tribal Design. She is at Antiguars Bengals in Germany, and she is simply stunning! With her wild head and straight convex profile, wonderfully wide muzzle and nose, she truly is a mini Black Panther!
