Beautifully detailed engraving of the Sloth Bear - Melursus ursinus.

The Sloth Bear, Stickney Bear or Labiated Bear (Melursus ursinus) is a nocturnal insectivorous bear species found wild within the Indian Subcontinent. Sloth bears breed during spring and early summer and give birth near the beginning of winter. They feed on termites, honeybee colonies, and fruits.

The size of the print: 9,8" x 6,7" (25 x 17 cm) including its border.
Printed in 1892, Bibliographisches Institut Leipzig Germany, as an illustration for "Brehm's Tierleben".

The print is in good condition, the paper shows its age with creamy patina, perfect for framing.

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 120 years - some spots can be occured on the margin and the reverse side, but these do not effect the quality of the print itself as it can be seen on the scan.

Please note, that by antique prints due to their age some imperfections are to be expected.
