“Black Panther in the Lincoln Park Zoo” by Emil S.


I’m a black panther in the Lincoln Park Zoo,

strong and powerful. The black panther is unique

because few animals are perfectly black.


The black panther is a huge cat whose color

provides good camouflage at night, so it can catch

its prey and avoid dangerous enemies.


My brothers and sisters live in rainforests in Africa.

Please help the black panther—it’s trying to do

its job of being a part of nature.
