Hope you enjoy!,1.

Crocodile vs AlligatorSnout shape: Alligators have wider, U-shaped snouts, while crocodile front ends are more pointed and V-shaped.

Toothy grin: When their snouts are shut, crocodiles look like theyre flashing a toothy grin, as the fourth tooth on each side of the lower jaw sticks up over the upper lip.


Plesiosaur vs Pliosaur (an obscure one for you fans of prehistoric animals),Differences in neck length and snout shape are the keys.


Sex vs Gender4.

Turtle vs Tortoise5.

Frog vs ToadYou can tell most toads and frogs apart by the appearance of their skin and legs.

There are some key differences.

Most frogs have long legs and smooth skins covered in mucus.

Toads generally have shorter legs and rougher, thicker skins.


Mammoth vs MastodonWhile similar in size and stature, fossil evidence shows that mastodons were slightly smaller than mammoths, with shorter legs and lower, flatter heads.

Both species stood between 7 and 14 feet (2 meters to 4 meters) tall, and were covered in long, shaggy hair that protected them from the harsh conditions of their respective environments.


Moth vs ButterflyOne of the easiest ways to tell the difference between a butterfly and a moth is to look at the antennae.




A moths antennae are feathery or saw-edged.

Butterflies and moths have many things in common, mainly scales that cover their bodies and wings.


Triceratops vs TorosaurusThese two dinosaurs are ceratopsians but the key difference is in the frill.

Torosaurus has a larger frill while Triceratops has a smaller one of solid bone.


Ocean vs SeaMany people use the terms ocean and sea interchangeably when speaking about the ocean, but there is a difference between the two terms.

Seas are smaller than oceans and are usually located where the land and ocean meet.


Valley vs Basin11.

Meteor vs Meteorite vs Meteoroid12.

Lizard vs SalamanderOne visual cue is that lizards usually have external ear-openings and clawed toes.




Salamanders are also amphibians, while lizards are reptiles.

The main differences between reptiles and amphibians are that reptiles are covered in dry scales or scutes, while amphibians have moist skins.


Bees vs Wasps14.

Peach vs NectarineThe main difference is that a peach has fuzz on its skin while a nectarine does not.

Nectarines are a bit more likely to be affected by diseases such as brown rot and bacterial spot.


Fresh vs Salt waterSaltwater is denser than freshwater due to the sodium chloride dissolved in it.

This means that a specific volume of salt water is heaver than the same volume of freshwater.

Warmer salt water is less dense than colder saltwater, which results in the colder water sinking to the ocean floor.


Religion vs SpiritualitySpirituality gives the individual freedom over his or her interpretation of the soul or spirit, whereas religion implies participation in a communal practice and interpretation of divine belief and worship.


Shrimp vs PrawnPrawns have claws on three of their five pairs of legs,shrimp have claws on two of their five pairs of legs.

Their gills and body shape are different too.

As far as cooking them goes, they are virtually identical and interchangeable.

Poison vs Venom ( Thanks Emerson Han in the comments),Poison takes effect when it is ingested but Venom does when it hits the blood stream.


Jaguar vs LeopardThe jaguar is stockier and more muscular than the leopard, with a compact body, a broader head and powerful jaws.

The jaguars tail is also generally shorter than the leopards tail.


Grizzly vs Black bearThe grizzly bear has a pronounced shoulder hump, which the black bear lacks.

It also has a concave or u201cdishedu201d facial profile, smaller ears and much larger claws than the black bear.

Black bears have a flatter, u201cRoman-noseu201d profile, larger ears, no visible shoulder hump and smaller claws.

One more thing to know is Black bears have been found with brown colored fur so color is not the deciding factor when telling them apart.


Asteroid vs CometThe main difference between asteroids and comets is their composition, as in, what they are made of.

Asteroids are made up of metals and rocky material, while comets are made up of ice, dust and rocky material.
