A picture of a black panther, a unique black leopard species, sighted at a sanctuary in Goa has reminded the internet of ‘Bagheera’ from Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. Walking majestically in the wild in a shiny melanised coat the predator was recorded in the camera at Patiem Beat of Netravali Wildlife Sanctuary, South Goa. The picture, that now has over 2.7k likes was shared by CM Pramod Sawant on his official Twitter handle.

According to reports, a senior forest department official said that the forest authorities were investigating whether the black panther is alone species or there was a clan that roamed in the tiger dominated area. The predator could be seen lurking near the pond in what seemed liked to quench thirst when the camera captured the sighting. “Good numbers of black Panthers are getting spotted recently very good sign for our beautiful wildlife,” wrote a user. “Whoa, look at the black shining velvety fur,” wrote another user surprised, while making a heart emoji. “Bagheera Return,” wrote the third. “Bagheera,” wrote the fourth.
