What is the difference in physical appearance?
When you look at the size of the body of both animals, then you will know that there is a lot of difference in their texture. Leopards are larger than cheetahs, but cheetahs have less body thickness than leopards. A cheetah can usually weigh around 70 to 77 kilograms. At the same time, the maximum weight of the leopard can range from 90 to 110 kg.
