Leopards live mostly across southern parts of Africa and in scattered communities across Asia, Pakistan and Malaysia, while jaguars live in the Americas
WARNING: Answer Below
Leopards are solitary animals, unlike lions, and largely hunt at night to avoid competition with the so-called King of the Jungle.
They are similar in appearance to jaguars, but are smaller and less muscular. They also lack a dot in the centre of their spots, which is the mark of a jaguar.

It is unlikely that the two species would be confused in the wild, however, as they do not share a habitat.
Leopards live mostly across southern parts of Africa and in scattered communities across Asia, Pakistan and Malaysia, while jaguars live in the Americas.
