★ These two spotted cats seem identical, but show distinct differences when viewed in comparison. Both species have distinct builds and generally differing coat patterns.

★ Both jaguars and leopards have very similar skin; however, the minor distinction is the jaguar skin’s rosettes are larger than the leopard’s.

★ More distinct differences are seen in the build of these two cats. The jaguar has an overall more muscular build. The body is compact, and the legs are more stocky than the more gracile leopard. 

★ The jaguar's head is also more stocky, with a larger looking jaw and an overall more square appearance to the face. Below is a small table comparing the two cats:
