The black panthers are beautiful!! The only one I didn't really like is the black salamander. He's a bit freaky looking.

Black squirrels are very common in central Canada, and I know someone who owned an all black guinea pig. Bonnie

The black squirrels where I live are driving me crazy this year. I’ve been waging WW3 with them because as fast as I plant up my tubs and hanging baskets they uproot everything in order to bury their ‘treasures’. They also dig up, and eat, every spring bulb I plant except for daffodils and yellow tulips. Guess I’m going to have to settle for a yellow spring garden!

I had a melanistic cat! All black, all over! Vet said he was very rare because normally black cats had a few white hairs somewhere on their bodies which saved them from being killed during and after the black plaque. All totally black cats are extremely rare.
