The Difference Between Leopard and Cheetah Print

You say you’re crazy for cheetah print, but do you really like leopard? The prints are easy to mix up—and often are—but you’ll know the difference after reading this post.

Your cheat-sheet for cheetah spots: They’re  just one color.

Leopard print, on the other hand, has some shading and the spots are two-toned.

So there you go. Now you’ll be on point the next time you’re hunting for cheetah-print shoes. Rawr.

So do you know your animal prints? And are you a feline fan? (By the way, these cute rugs are currently available for purchase; just click the images above.)

    Everyone seems to mix up cheetah spots to leopards and jaguar’s. Cheetahs are the easiest ones to notice the difference, they are round and are black. The others are similar to the bottom picture, not full circles and are not all black spots. I to get angry when people sell things and say that its cheetah print when clearly, its not even close. Cheetah print is round, not any other shape, and are completely black. Thank you. Oh, and I love cheetahs.

    Hello,
    I am designing a poster for presentation at the Psychological Society of Ireland’s conference. The title of the poster is “Still Tarzan and Jane?” and it investigates how are men influenced by the role models they see in TV ads- specifically, how are they influenced by the way men and women are portrayed.

    I am looking for a cheetah print for the background of the poster and I’d be really grateful if I could use your cheetah picture above. The poster will be printed on A0 size paper so if you have a high-res version, that would be great.

    Thanks and I hope to hear from you. I need to go to the printers on 7 October.

    You can check details about the conference on http://www.psihq.ie and follow the links to the Conference.
    Thanks
    Una
