Caption: Predatory mammals. 19th-century artwork of a striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena), an African lion (Panthera leo), and a tiger (Panthera tigris).

The hyena, found in Africa, is primarily a scavenger though it will also hunt. The lion and tiger are carnivorous predators, large cats found in Africa and Asia respectvely. Artwork from 'Encyclopaedia Metropolitana', an encyclopedia published in London between 1817 and 1845. Thirty volumes were issued in 59 parts, with 22,426 pages and 565 plates.
