Mṛgamātṛkā (मृगमातृका) is a Sanskrit word referring to the “hog deer”. The meat of this animal is part of the māṃsavarga (‘group of flesh’), which is used throughout Āyurvedic literature. The animal Mṛgamātṛkā is part of the sub-group named Jāṅgalamṛga, refering to “animals living in forests”. It was classified by Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna (chapter 27), a classical Āyurvedic work. Caraka defined such groups (vargas) based on the dietic properties of the substance.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
Mṛgamātṛkā (मृगमातृका)—Sanskrit word which could refer to a kind of “red-coloured hare like deer”. This animal is from the group called Jaṅghāla (large-kneed). Jaṅghāla itself is a sub-group of the group of animals known as Jāṅghala (living in high ground and in a jungle).
The venison of the Mriga-mātrikā species is cooling and proves curative in cases of hæmoptysis, Sannipāta diseases (due to the concerted action of the three deranged humours), consumption, dyspnœa, cough, and hiccough and creates a relish for food.Source: archive.org: Sushruta samhita, Volume I
