Spot the leopard

If you see a spotted cat in the wild, how do you know it is a leopard and not a cheetah? For all those who want to know, the leopard has more muscle and is larger than the cheetah.

Built to carry prey into big trees, the leopard has a strong, muscular neck with a large head. They hide their prey from other predators like lions in the branches of trees.

Leopards have rosettes on a tawny coat, which becomes paler under the body.
