    First: @chireef. Thanks for pointing that out. I’ve seen a few in my travels; it’s fairly easy to spot (sorry about that) the differences:

    Leopard (Mala Mala, 3/22/01):


    Click-to-enlarge image available from here (the 21 May 2005 version, the page now features the retouched image) or Mr. Melcher’s blog entry (funny nobody pointed out it’s a cheetah; perhaps someone did, but that was kept from the public).

    Cheetah and Stag with Two Indians (yes, cheetah is in the title) is described in its current-location page (the source of the different coloration title image). A much longer discussion is provided on pages 236-239 of an online book (under a slightly different title, not sure who had the trouble with big cat identification). Another different coloration image is available from here, but there are many different coloration images. The artist’s Wikipedia page and collection (more in Subcategories).

    Second of the 4 works by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.

    Thanks for your “spot-on” analysis. Always interesting.

    Whatever it is, don’t they know that Cheetahs never prosper??

    “Look, one more time – that’s a deer, you’re a cheetah. You’re supposed to eat him for dinner, not go out with him for dinner!”

    Another way to tell them apart is that cheetahs like cheese snacks.
