What the Print? | Cheetah vs Leopard

Heres a question…what is the difference between cheetah, leopard and jaguar print?? What about Ocelot, do you even know what kind of animal that is?

Well, here it is…


Cheetah spots are equally spaced, solid black dots.


Leopard print is more complex. They have a golden brown coat with black shapes that resemble a horseshoe or circle.


We typically never use the term “Jaguar Print”, but we can certainly see the difference in the pattern!  It is defined by a larger “horseshoe” shape with inconsistent black spots inside.


The ocelot print is another pattern that is commonly used but not referenced as such because it is not a commonly known animal. Their spots are like the cats above, but they are elongated or stretched the length of their body.

Now that we’ve sorted that out, we are excited to be able to correctly identify the spots on some of our favorite animal print fabrics! Hope this helps you too!!
