Incredible Rare Black Leopard Spotted At An Indian Reserve

Wow, wow, wow. 

Picture this: you're on a safari at the Tadoba Reserve, in India, when all of a sudden you spot a black leopard drinking water from a pond. That's what happened to 23-year-old Abhishek Pangis, who watched the rare black leopard for a total of 40 minutes! 

Can you imagine what a sight that must have been? Luckily, Pangis took some photos so we can see the majestic black leopard for ourselves. In an interview with LADBible, Pangis explains how he felt when first spotting the rare wildcat.

Still, must have been breathtaking to see it in person!
