Ayurveda (science of life)
Animals such as
- the lion,
- arboreal leopard (Vriksha-dipi),
- and Mriga(-ervaruka?) (a jackal-shaped, deer-eating species of tiger)
belong to the group of the Guhāśayas (cave-dwelling mammals).
The flesh of animals belonging to this family is sweet, heavy, demulcent and strength-giving. It subdues the deranged Vāyu. It is heat-making in its potency, and proves beneficial in diseases affecting the eyes and anus.
The Guhāśaya is a sub-group of the Jāṅghala group (living in high ground and in a jungle).Source: archive.org: Sushruta samhita, Volume I
