How are $t$-distributions and $z$-distributions different?
They have a different mean.
The tails of a $t$-distribution, but not a $z$-distribution, go to infinity.
The Central Limit Theorem can be applied to the $z$ but not to the $t$.
There is a family of $z$-distributions, but only one $t$-distribution.
