    Hello ZooChat community,
    I am currently writing a book, that involves animals. One key detail in the story is a misinterpretation of a paw mark. Since it has pictures in it, i have to draw the right paw mark. So my question is, what are the differences of paw marks between the major species in the feline family? It could help if could describe or show the differences between a lion, tiger, cheetah and jaguar.

    Thank You

    I would suggest you contact Cat Haven, run by my friend Dale Anderson. He has the four species you mention and is very good about responding to questions regarding wild cats. You can find contact information on their website: Project Survival’s Cat Haven
