The man-tyger is a monster, consisting of a lion with a human head; sometimes the feet have been replaced by human hands. It’s been suggested [Dennys 116] that the monster is an heraldic representation of the baboon of nature: the cant with Babyngton, who used the man-tyger as a badge in 1529, supports this theory. The man-tyger is very similar to the manticore, and may be considered an artistic variant.
