Marine Mammals in an Old Print

I acquired this old print a while back (see image below). Not sure which is the source or the date. But based on the illustrations, it seems quite old (based on the engraver's name, probably sometime in the early 1800's). The reason I got it was primarily for the marine mammals, but there are also other animals which are curiously depicted.
Feel free to write in the comments which kind of animal you see in it, and/or peculiar things you notice in about them. Enjoy!
