A very unusual genetic color variation in white-tailed deer — rarer even than albinism — produces all-black offspring in that species which are known as “melanistic” or “melanic” deer.

Jaguar ~ by: Josef Gelernter. Jaguars with melanism appear entirely black, but their spots are visible. Black melanism affects about 6% of the population, well above the rate of mutation. Melanistic jaguars are informally known as black panthers, but (as with all forms of polymorphism) they do not form a separate species.
