An engineering student took stunning photos of a rare black leopard during his first safari trip to India.

Abhishek Pangis from Pune in the western state of Maharashtra watched the majestic big cat in the Tadoba Reserve for 40 minutes last month.

The 23-year-old said he had "emptied" when he saw the leopard for the first time on the second day of the two-day trip LadBible.

After ten minutes, Mr. Pangis realized that he was the only person on the trip with a camera and started tMake photos.

He said: & # 39;I hadn't seen anything so beautiful, I was completely stunned. Usually people saw it for two or three minutes, but I was very lucky to see it for 40 minutes. & # 39;

He watched the cat "drink water from a pond, mark its territory, and chase langurs and monkeys."

Mr. Pangis and his parents saw the leopard in June when it was 45 ° C and the cat had to leave the undergrowth for water.

The animal's dark fur is caused by melanism – when, due to a recessive genetic mutation, extra black pigment develops in the skin or hair.
