These animals are the opposite of albino, and have an excess of melanin, which makes them look much sleeker. Also they are known as melanistic animals.

It is called 'melanism'.

Melanism is an undue development of dark-colored pigment in the skin or its appendages and is the opposite of albinism. It is also the medical term for black jaundice. The word 'melanism' is deduced from the Greek: μελανός, meaning black pigment.
