Mystique, the Black Beauty

Mystique, the Black Beauty

She’s a rare and wonderful creature. Being an Amur leopard, she’s the most endangered of all the big cats. She’s also one of the few leopards with a black coat, a genetic variation known as melanistic. Mystique is pretty special! And then there’s that deep purring growl sound she makes that vibrates right into my heart every time I hear it! Gotta love this girl!
