Animal coat colours : Black predominant [ eligibility and rules below, dont make me DQ you for the sake of a few moments to read the rules ]

Challenge #38 in the The Company Of Animals series. Hosted by Patchandcrew.
Challenge has finished
Lets see your best shots of any species of animal MAMMAL whose natural coat/fur is predominantly black. [ Other colours/markings are fine but there must be clearly more black than other colours *within shot*, if the balance is too far from black predominant I will DQ ;) ]. If unsure please ask.
