    Hi there Johnny,

    Hello Johnny,
    There is a beautiful black leopard here, but it is not trained in the sense of a performing animal. Leopards are very unpredictable by nature and extremely hard to train. It is useful for close ups but not for any directed action. If you are interested drop me a line, and I can send you some images. Otherwise sounds like the guys in South Africa may have what you need. Best of luck, Ginger. or

    South Africa can offer you all the cats you need under ‘direction’ of a highly experienced wrangler. Among many animal commercials shot with him over the years (ING “Lion”, etc) we recently shot a commercial for Citroen that featured lions, cheetahs, leopards and a black leopard (panther) – plus a host of other animals, all based at the same animal wrangling ranch. We have lots of reference pics on our database. Contact me at +27 21 447-7299 Regards IAN NIVISON Exec Prod

    We appreciate your feed back and support.
    Once project is ready to go pre, we will call one of you to proceed.

    Thank you.

    Hi, we´ve shot several times with an absolutely tame cheetah here in Czech republic.No problem sitting next to an actress or similar action. Color perhaps can be done by dying or post. Not sure what are you looking for.Leopards, by my knowledge are impossible to put next to people.
    if interested, drop me an email at,
    best regards David Rauch, U.F.O. Pictures, Czech republic
