So the first two shots look very similar...can you spot (no pun intended) the difference. Look carefully before viewing the fourth....a negative clue...no kills, no 2nd leopard...it's all about the only visible cat in the photo.
Ok, it looks like I didn't explain this well enough and I'm sorry for that. I realize that there are some changes in the back legs and such but what I was looking for wasn't that. This is not going to be that exciting but more just a subtle difference that helps big cats do what they do.
Look at the front paw as it takes a step and notice that the claws unsheathe...sorry if you were expecting something more exciting...but I haven't too many shots where I can see the claws just the paws. The close up is in the fourth photo.
Another photo just to break up the first two from the answer in the 4th...things that look hidden may in fact be in sharp focus
So most of you know that big cats have retractable claws (cheetahs do not...theirs are exposed all the time like sprinters spikes)...here is a closeup of one this cat's lethal weapons. It is used for climbing, grabbing prey, defense against the dark arts...well maybe not the last but you get the idea
Yes Virginia leopards do have very sharp claws
