Bizarre and Beautiful

These old engravings of animals (done around 1860) from Fine Rare Prints are cool. The top one looks like a nun crossed with a cat - it's a yellow throated sloth. See the head of one peering out from the back of the tree on the right? The bottom one shows animals and man enjoying each other's company, as if they belong to the same family. I like these drawings a lot.
