A lot of people don’t know/can’t tell the difference between fur patterns of big cats: so I will clarify. (:
First, the cheetah.
Notice the solid black close together spots. This is what cheetahs look like.
Second, the leopard.
Leopards have rosettes and darker fur color within the black spots, which differs from the cheetah’s coat.
Last, the jaguar.
Jaguars can look a lot like leopard’s fur, but the jaguar’s pattern has the black rosettes with black spots in the middle of them, making them different from the leopard.
I love big cats and I hate to see people get them confused, so hopefully this will help!

Sometimes mother wallabies will throw their babies out of their pouches when chased by a predator to ensure their own survival. Most animals would sacrifice themselves for their babies, but wallabies say screw that, take the kid, deuces.
Some deer have fangs—no, this is not photoshopped. Chinese water deer can grow tusks “fangs” that can be over two inches long.
Sometimes sloths grab their own arms thinking it’s a tree branch and fall to their deaths.
The Norwegian Lundehund’s head can bend back to touch it’s spine.
Woodpeckers have a tongue that stretches completely around their skulls that acts as a shock-absorber
Hyenas have a bite force of 1100 PSI. The average Pitbull has a bite force of about 235 PSI.
Hyenas will also eat anything whether it’s alive or not they don’t give a shit
The Inland Taipan is the most venomous/deadly snake in the world—with enough venom to kill 100 men.
Most monkeys’ and apes’ “smile” as a way of threatening someone and warning them.
