Me thinketh there are some threads posted are done so out of boredom and attention seeking. Try the library or research things on line.

Puma, cougar and sometimes panther are common names for the largest "small cat" in the Americas, Felis concolor, https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cougar It has 129 chromosomes.

Jaguars are the only large cat of the americas, typically found in central and South America, they are spotted but have a melanistic phase where they appear black, sometimes the black form is called a panther. They tend to be larger with heavier bodies than leopards and their spots are different in form.


Leopards are limited to Africa, but are similar to jaguars in having both a spotted and melanistic form, though it is less common in leopards.

Nope they are wrong.

Seas and lakes are not specific to salinity. The Baltic Sea is much fresher than most bays, great salt lake saltier.

Jaguars are not the same species as cougars which do not have a melanistic phase, though some can be quite dark, particularly in Florida.

nucular[sic] fusion vs. nucular[sic] fission.
(nucular vs. nuclear for that matter -- nuclear sounds like some anti-acne cream)
