Lijagulep (1908)

    Newer Older

    From a bookplate (1908). I believe this is the one now preserved in the Walter Rothchild Zoological Museum. A female leopard/jaguar hybrid was crossed with a lion to produce this hybrid: half lion, quarter leopard, quarter jaguar. The overall effect is of a lioness with pale brown rosettes.

      From your description, is that the Tring specimen (incorrectly) labelled as the Jaguar-Lion hybrid?

      From reading the history of the lijagulep, I believe it is the one at Tring and incorrectly labelled there.
