* The leopard is built for strength so it is very solid and stocky, with shorter legs.
* The cheetah being built for speed, so it is very slender with long legs.
* The leopard is nocturnal, so it is more active at night.
* The cheetah is diurnal, so more active during the day.
* The leopards spots are called rosettes, they are more of a cluster of black spots with a dark brown spot in the middle.
* The cheetahs spots are a solid black dot.

Agree with Philip. :D
just one more thing I can add- a cheetah has two stripes down his nose "tears" which a leopard does not have.

Death cap, shaggy ink and stink horn are all types of fungi. They grow in the woodlands during autumn and they have no chlorophyll of their own therefore rely on living off other plant and animal material for food. Shaggy ink cap is edible while death cap and stink horn are inedible. :whistle:

"There is no difference between mushrooms and toadstools, although the term toadstools has gradually become applied to toxic types. They are all agarics (ie fungi with gills beneath the cap).

Mushrooms found in gardens or on lawns are highly unlikely to be seriously toxic but may cause gastrointestinal upsets or be hallucinogenic".
