    This is an incredible mount. Real imagination and artwork went into this.

    Apologies to @Ernest Moyo, it sucks when someone craps on your thread, especially when you are trying to show off your accomplishments.

    But in all honesty, there is a substantial difference between the two leopard mounts pictured. The details may appear small at first glance but are significant when studied for a few seconds. Look closely at the position and muscle detail of that lower front leg especially. That looks how a live cat would brace himself in that position. And the whole face from the neck through the eyes and into the snarl. It is snarling with its whole body, but especially the eyes.

    The one posted by Dennis @The Artistry of Wildlife is clearly World Class. That cat actually looks alive! The other one just looks like taxidermy.

    @Ernest Moyo please look closely and try to take the opportunity to learn from this Award winning mount comparison. And remember the difference is in the details.
