When do black panthers sleep?

Black panthers are the melanistic color variant of the jaguar (Panthera onca) in the Americas, and the leopard (Panthera pardus) in Africa and Asia. The jaguar is crepuscular, meaning that they are active during the twilight hours of dusk and dawn, basically sleeping in 'split shifts'. Leopards are primarily nocturnal, meaning that they sleep during the daytime hours, but activity patterns may vary by season.

Why do baboons kill leopards?

To cut down on competition for resources and to prevent future predation.

A baboon would be hard pressed to kill a leopard. Leopards often prey on baboons, and a baboon, in spite of its long canines, and fierce temperament, would have little chance against the leopard.

Animal Health

Can you use sterile saline for animals on humans?

Technically yes, although you won't find a human physician ordering veterinary supplies for use on his own patients - the risk of liability in human medicine for doing this is too high. However, if you are looking at a first aid kit at home, a veterinary sterile saline solution will do fine for a human.

How are leopards and jaguars alike?

Panthera pardus live in sub-Saharan and Northeast Africa, Central Asia, India, and China. There are 9 subspecies world wide. However, many of these populations are endangered, especially outside of Africa. Leopards are the 5th largest cat in the world. Leopards are graceful and commanding big cats. They are most comfortable in trees where it often hauls its kills into the branches. By dragging the bodies of large animals aloft it hopes to keep them safe from scavengers such as hyenas.

Panthera Onca lives in the Mexico, Central and South America. Jaguars are the 3rd largest cat in the world and largest cat in the New World. They are muscular, shorter in length and extremely powerful. Unlike many other big cats, apart from man, the jaguar has no rivals - no other predator can compete with this powerful cat. The Jaguar has particularly powerful jaws and often kills its prey by piercing the skull with one swift bite.

In appearance the Jaguar and the Leopard are similar although identification would not be an issue as the cats inhabit different continents. Each cat has brownish/yellow base fur color with distinctive dark markings. The Jaguar can be distinguished by the presence of small dots or irregular shapes within larger rosette markings. Leopards tends to have mostly spots. Both cats are carriers of Melanism allele. This is a genetic mutation in which both Leopards and Jaguars produces Melanistic or black offspring. The black cats are often labeled 'Black Panthers.' For the record, there is no one distinct species of wild cat called a Black Panther.

Both Leopards and Jaguars are good swimmers and at home in the water. Except for breeding, both cats are solitary animals.

Are there any black panthers in NC?

Not unless in a zoo. The only wild cat found there now is the bobcat, which is never black. The puma was found there in the past, but they are never black either.

Really?? Don't imagine you live there, do you?? There certainly are black panthers in NC. Most specifically, in Western NC. I have had them scratching at a garage door, leaving a lot of damage. We hear them screaming at night. A friend of mine lives way up in the mountains, away from "civilization" and they see them often and hear them all the time. Live in la la land if you wish but if you ever join the real world and are in NC look out for panthers. They DO exist and they exist in our backyards .... not just zoos!

Leopards and Panthers

Frogs have ears on the side of their heads what can they hear underwater?

Sounds, which are nothing more than vibrations, can actually be heard better and further underwater than in air. So I would think frog's ears would be useful both underwater and sitting on land, to detect noise/vibrations of predators and to detect mates.
