Caradura vs. Un Morro

Members of the Forum!

What is the difference between:

"Tiene un morro" and "es un caradura"?

I think that there is some nuance of a difference that the dictionaries are not showing me.

for me they are de same, tener morro might be more colloquial and caradura is more standard.

Robin,

I am thinking that caradura might be stronger language.

Just yesterday I was watching Saber y Ganar, and the lady knew the answer and the host was needling her a bit about whether of not she was sure. But the question was about chemistry and she was a chemist, so she knew the answer and, when he starting poking and needling her (in jest), she put on kind of a sly smile, and he said "¡Ah, que morro!", and he was laughing.

But caradura makes me think of somone at a poker game.

But I don't really know!
