Noting that he "went blank" when he first saw the majestic animal, Pangis then realized that he was the only person on the trip with a camera and began taking photos.

"I went blank when I spotted it," he told the outlet. "I hadn't seen anything so beautiful. I was completely stunned and came back to my senses after 10 minutes and started clicking pictures."

Sharing that he stayed in close proximity to the animal for 40 minutes, Pangis deemed the encounter a "brilliant experience."

"Usually people have seen it around for two or three minutes but I was very lucky as I could see it for 40 minutes," he said. "I witnessed it drinking water from a pond, marking its territory and stalking langurs and monkeys."

Pangis spotted the leopard in June when temperatures were close to 113 degrees. He added, "There is more chance of the wild cats coming out for water."

"There were 10-15 safari jeeps but they left when they did not see the leopard and just three or four safari jeeps stayed with us," he said. "None of them had a camera so when it came out in the open, it was just me who had the camera and could take its pictures."

The animal gets its rare coloring from a mutation that causes melanism — an excessive development of dark-colored pigment in the skin.

Pangis considers himself lucky to have spotted the black leopard and recognizes that everyone is not as lucky as him, including professional photographers who spend time and money with hopes of catching a  glimpse of the animal.

India, third country most affected by Covid -19, struggles to reduce the growth in the number of cases. The country recorded on July 22 more than 45,000 new cases and 1,100 deaths in 24 hours, a worrying record. This fear of the virus gives rise to new trafficking in plasma from cured patients.

"I knew there are black leopards but I was very lucky to have spotted it during my first safari trip," he said. "Professional wildlife photographers spend millions and several months to catch a glimpse of such rare animals."
