First of all, this is an amazing picture! I am quite impressed with your level of skill. This is a jaguar, I know that for a fact, because first of all, its face is that of a jaguar, a few subspecies of jaguar have a similar face, but by face a lone I can tell it is a jaguar. But the most important feature of the animal that confirms that it is not a panthera pardus but a panthera onca is it's rosettes the special ring like spots found on leopards, jaguars, king cheetahs and a few other cats. In its rosettes on the lower back and neck are large and have spots in them, no leopard color variation has this, this is unique to the jaguar. Also once again I would like to comment on how amazing this shot was, thank you for sharing!

You take overwhelming pictures of wild animals! I really got no words and feel a bit scary frightened... Great work with shadows on here.

Awesome picture!!
Specially the eyes, is that their actual color?
Also, I'm no specialist or anything (Biology student) but I'm pretty sure it is in fact a Jaguar. The first clue are the low and small ears, the broad forehead and nose and the powerful jaws. Leopards have bigger ears (in relation to their skull) and are more lightly built. But you can tell for sure it is a Jaguar because it has smaller spots inside the "rosettes", like the one you can see on its shoulder. Leopards also have rosettes, but the don't have smaller spots inside them.

Hope I helped with that :D

Excellent photo! I'm in the Jaguar camp. If you really want to know what it is, send the zoo a photo and ask. I'm sure they would tell you and probably even tell you her name.

From the look of the spots I think it is an Amur Leopard. I was checking the spots to a chart I took a picture of at the Philly zoo.
