The panther occurs in both species, the jaguar (Panthera onca) and the leopard (Panthera pardus). It is difficult to decide, whether the "panther" was a leopard or a jaguar. Differences are to be recognized best by the statue. The jaguar is built more strongly. They can also be well ditiguished by their head. But the easiest way is to see them in their typical habitat. The jaguar lives in South America and you will find the leopard in Africa and Asia.
