"Black Panther disappears in the mist between the branches of the trees, like a whisper deep in the jungle where the trees sing the songs of the journeys of souls that have passed this way before.
The Black Panther animal hidden in the trees takes stock of your every move, your energy, your confidence and your fears.
Black Panther appears for you to challenge you to overcome the fears held within your shadow."
Deep within the jungle awaits an animal who is always on the hunt. The intensity and focus of his eyes speak clearly of his intention, the phrase "if looks could kill" must have come from this elusive and magnificent creature, the Black Panther.
