Came across this unusual shot on Jigidi and thought I'd share it.

Magnificent cat would be an understatement.

It looks like it's about to jump through that tail.

Is that its own tail, or the tail of another cat? Hard to tell.

When I first looked at it, I thought it was one cat looking backwards. But now I think it's one cat looking through the tail of another passing in front of it. Probably a once in a lifetimes shot for whoever took it.

I always have trouble telling the difference between Leopards and Jaguars. What's your opinion on these guys?

Jaguars have spots that usually have another spot(s) in the center, surrounded by other spots.

Leopards just have spots in a circle, without the spot in the center.

EDIT: And the ones in your pic appear to be leopards.

It would seem so. And thank you for that very informative link. I always like learning new things about cats.
