…vs. Snow leopards
They’re gray and fluffy. No other big cat is gray and fluffy.
I shouldn’t have to explain this, but not everyone seems to know the difference between snow leopards and yellow-colored cats. Even if you have absolutely no cones in your eyes, you couldn’t possibly mix them up because snow leopards are so radically different from every other wild cat that I can’t imagine anyone mistaking them for, say, a jaguar.
Yet someone managed to do just that. 0_o
Cheetahs vs. Leopards vs. Jaguars
Small head, streamlined (greyhound-like) body, large chest, solid spots, brown or amber eyes. Not considered a big cat, but a large small cat. Note the compact, angular head and black “tears” from each eye to the mouth.
Stockier and larger, more feline build than the cheetah, with yellow or green eyes. The head is fairly round in shape and the muzzle is relatively small. Solid spots become tight rosettes on the back.
Even stockier than the leopard, with a wider muzzle and yellow eyes. Spots are solid, organic shapes and become loose rosettes. The only New World big cat (mountain lions, like cheetahs, are large small cats).
