Images of fifteen animals sitting or climbing on alternate merlons of a wall: pelican, anteater, two raccoons, leopard, beaver, vulture, hyena, wolf, two apes, seal, bear, lioness and lynx. There are two separate male lions each bearing an armorial shield. The wall originally featured nine animals and was located outside Cardiff Castle; six new animals were added when it was moved to its current location in the 1920s.
