-Hares are typically faster and larger than rabbits. Their ears and strong hind legs are also longer, and they have bigger feet.
-Butterflies have club-shaped antennae that look like a thin shaft with a bulbous tip. As for moths, their antennae are either serrated or feathery.
-You will notice that sheep hold them down whereas the tails of goats proudly stay up.
-Like all rodents, porcupines have big front teeth. As for hedgehogs, their snouts and teeth are pointy, and they are omnivores, feasting on insects, frogs, plants, and fruit.
-Mature llamas are much larger than alpacas, whose weight typically varies between 100 lb and 170 lb. As for an adult llama, it can weigh as much as 400 lb.
-Crocodiles are the lucky owners of special glands, which they use to excrete excess salt. As for alligators, their salt glands aren’t so well developed. That’s why they mostly live in fresh water.
-Sea lions’ flippers are larger and covered with skin. Seals have a thinly webbed flipper, and each small toe has a claw. Seals prefer solitude, and sea lions love gathering in big companies and hanging out with friends.
-Bees are hairy: they need this feature to dip into flowers to collect pollen. Also, their rear legs are flat. Bees look more stocky.
-The skin of most frogs is smooth, while a toad’s skin is thick and bumpy. Frogs’ legs are long and slender, and their eyes are big and bulging.
-Most dolphins have pointy faces, curved dorsal fins, and slender bodies. Porpoises have triangular back fins, robust bodies, and rounded faces.
-Turtles have webbed feet as they live mostly in water, and this makes swimming easier. Also, their shells are lighter and flatter.
-You can find jaguars in Central and South America and sometimes in the southwest of the USA. As for leopards, they dwell in Asia and Africa. Jaguars have smaller spots. Leopards are more slender and a bit smaller than jaguars.
