What are the spots on a jaguar or leopard’s coat called?

10 Mar

This blog is dedicated to learning something new every day. And roughly 70 days in I have been religious about keeping it up to date. Until now. And technology is to blame.

Quite literally I have been unable to access my computer all day, which has made it very hard to do any sort of research. Plus there’s the small fact of having to do it all on my phone.

So clearly, a short and simple question was in order. And here it is – is there a special name for the spots on a leopard and jaguar’s coat? The answer is yes. They are called rosettes because they resemble flowers.

Until tomorrow when hopefully technology has become my friend again!
