Black Lion Looks Amazing - Hmmm.  I'm not sure but he looks Photoshopped.  If there is a melanistic  lion like this out there, I would be appropriately amazed and astounded.  Not to mention entirely in love.

In recent weeks, two very stunning black lion photographs have been circulating online. Why they attract such interest is that according to mainstream zoology, black lions simply do not exist. If they did, and were wholly black in colour, they would most probably be melanistic specimens; analogous if not homologous genetically with black panthers (melanistic leopards) and mutant all-black individuals of other felid species.

The opposite of albinism called melanism, a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black. This is perhaps the most beautiful lion I have ever seen. (pet,animal,dog,dogs,cat,pets,our picks)
