"While shooting from the Asilia Namiri Plains Camp in Tanzania, British
wildlife photographer George Turner captured a striking photo of an
incredibly rare serval who was completely covered in black fur.
According to Turner’s guide, the serval was given the name of “Manja”.
The serval is a small wild cat native to Africa and are normally spotted
in color, but melanism does occur. These cats are very secretive and
solitary, so capturing a shot of one, with or without melanism, out in
the open is an extreme rarity."
