Black Panther vs Black Panther?

A black panther is the melanistic color variant of the big cats. Black panthers in Asia and Africa are leopards (Panthera pardus), and those in the Americas are black jaguars (Panthera onca).

The Leopard Shark (Triakis semifasciata) is an active shark about 120-150cm long found in the Eastern North Pacific regions. Many times, the Zebra Shark (Stegostoma fasciatum) gets mistakenly called a Leopard Shark (more on this soon). The Leopard shark is a species of houndshark.

Not much is known about the Jaguar catshark (Bythaelurus giddingsi). It is found around the Galapagos islands. It is at least 45cm long.

And wasn't Black Panther a really fun superhero movie?
