Jaguar and cougar. Both these big cats are found in the Americas, with the jaguar being the larger and more powerful predator. This artwork is an engraving from a 1770 edition of volume 8 of 'Histoire naturelle generale et particuliere' by the French naturalist Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon (1707-1788). This 36-volume work was published between 1749 and 1789 by L'Imprimerie Royale (the official printers of the French monarchy).
