Cheetahs are my favorite animal (along with chimps). You can definitely tell the difference - cheeaths are known for their sleek and lanky features where as the leopard has a sturdier, more solid frame (the shorter legs, which aren't pictured, are a good indication as well).

I knew by the face. Their facial structures are different. Spots can be confusing on the angle, so I tend to rely on body and face structure to tell the difference. Cheetahs have a much leaner and smaller bone and facial structure compared to the Leopard. They are beautiful creatures.
