Panthers are usually found on three of the world's continents. The black panther is found in Asia, Africa, and America and they usually live in the Forest, swampland and grasslands to stake there pray( Panther). The black panther usually lives live in tropical and deciduous forest, panthers can also live in marches because they get protected by the sun so they do not get sun burned. Another cool fact is that the main part of why panthers are going extint is because off habitat loss. ( Panther )

The black panther is covered by a layer of skin which is covered by another layer of fur. There height in inches is 43-75 inches so that means that is a lot of fur!! The color of there skin is dark brown, and black. Most of the black panther species also has ovilish/circle black spots on there fur making them even harder to see when they are hunting there pray.

Reproduction

Black panthers reproduce sexually. The female panthers will have their cubs for about 2-3 months after there gestation period which is 90-105 day ( Panther ). Female panthers are able to reproduce at age 3-4, you might think this is early but really panthers live for only 12-15 years. Unlike many other animals panthers will stay with there mate for a long time and will share there food. ( Panther )
