We missed sighting him earlier by a few seconds or had seen him perched very far on a branch. Having no expectations of sighting a big cat, all of a sudden, we spotted the black panther sitting beside the forest track recently.”

Black Panther prefers to live in dense forests where there is less sunlight penetration and there is ample food and safety for it.
