As 你 probably know, cheetahs and leopards look very similar and many people mistake cheetahs for leopards 或者 the opposite. Look at two 图片 of a leopard and a cheetah, then you'll see that they're very different from each other.
1. Cheetahs are much 更多 lanky, having a thin stomach for easier running. But leopards have 更多 muscles, though I may not know much about leopards, but I'm guessing it's for hunting purposes.
2. Cheetahs have a larger chest because they have extra large lungs and 心 so they can withstand their large bursts of energy.
3. A leopard's spots are 更多 like blotches together with a darker shade of 毛皮 in the middle, they also have less spots than the cheetah. Cheetahs have many small dots on their fur, rather than blotches.
4. Cheetahs have tear lines on their face, 或者 你 could say stripes on their face. Leopards don't because cheetahs need to see through the sun's glare in the hot Savannah.
5. Leopards have pale green shade of eyes, cheetahs have dark brown.
6. Unlike other cats, cheetahs cannot retract their claws because they improve their speed. But leopards can retract their claws because sometimes they need them, sometimes they don't.
7. This is an obvious reason, but it counts as one. Cheetahs are meant to be quick and leopards are meant for surprise attacks.
8. Leopards cannot purr, only while exhaling. Cheetahs purr when happy, calm and during tense moments.
I'm pretty sure there are 更多 reasons, but 你 can 搜索 that up yourself.
