Shelf locator: PC ANI-Jag
Content: Foxing on image. Printed on border: "Felis onca, Lin." "Which is sometimes called the American tiger, is one of the most formidable animals of the New World. He is to be found in the southern division of America, from Paraguay to Guiana; but he does not appear to inhabit to the northward of the Isthmus of Darien. Even in the south the race is gradually growing more rare, in consequence of the double temptation to destroy him, which is offered by the desire of getting rid of a beast so destructive to the flocks, and by the high price which is obtained for his skin." Includes additional text.
