What can you tell me about North American black panthers?

I am moving to North America and would like to learn more about these animals.

In North America the word "panther" usually refers to a cougar, also known as puma. Black colour is caused by presence of melanin.

I can tell you that there are not that many in the wild any longer. Most are in zoos or some other type of wildlife preserve. If you are thinking you will see one in your back yard, I seriously doubt you would unless they escaped from the local zoo.
