Leopard (Panthera pardus)

Leopards and jaguars share characteristics that sometimes make them difficult to distinguish. But a first clear difference is their ecozone. The jaguar lives in America while the leopard lives in Africa and Asia. The leopard is less robust than the jaguar, has less bite strength and is more elusive, due to greater competition with other animals such as lions or tigers.
