This is another topic which generates confusion. What is the difference between:

  • Cheetah
  • Leopard
  • Jaguar
  • Panther

Are they all different species or similar?

Actually all three of these belong to different species.

The Cheetah is smaller than the Leopard & the Jaguar. The last two are both sturdy and built to climb trees.

And a Panther may be a black Leopard and/or Jaguar.
