    Description

    Joseph Wolf Elephant Folio Print: Felis Jaguarondi; The Yaguarundi. This print comes from J. Wolf and J. Smit's A Monograph of the Felidae or the Family of Cats, (London 1878-1883). This book was written in order to create a compilation of illustrations and facts about all the known cat species of the day. This cat, native to Mexico, Central America, and South America is shown playing with an Armadillo, who has rolled himself up into a protective position. One page of text, which contains information and observations about the species, accompanies this print . One interesting fact listed: the cat will often jump on the back of deer, as they try to flee, and bring them down without ever losing their hold. Wolf's work on the cats is considered his masterpiece.
