Notes

: Printed on border: "Foremost, and holding the highest rank among the most formidable animals of the New World, stands the jaguar, or, as he is sometimes called, the American tiger. Superior to the leopard in size as well as in strength, he approaches very nearly in both respects to the lionesses of the smaller breeds; he is, however, less elevated on his legs, and heavier and more clumsy in all his proportions. His head is larger and rounder than that of the leopard; and his tail is considerably shorter in proportion, being only of sufficient length to allow of its touching the ground when the animal is as long as his whole body." Includes additional text.
