480 페이지 - Les crêtes temporales sont beaucoup plus basses et ne se rapprochent pas pour former, comme dans le tapir commun, une crête unique et élevée; le bord inférieur de sa mâchoire est beaucoup plus droit, les os du nez sont plus forts, plus alongés et plus saillants.
479 페이지 - La tète diflëre du tapir commun par sa forme générale; son occiput n'est pas saillant , sa nuque est ronde et n'a point cette crête charnue , si remarquable dans l'espèce ordinaire ; tout le corps est couvert d'un poil très-épais , d'un brun noirâtre , plus foncé à la pointe qu'à la racine; sur la croupe on voit de chaque côté une place nue , large comme deux fois la paume de la main , et au-dessus de la division des doigts, une- raie blanche dégarnie T. xL. 2 de poils ; le menton...
828 페이지 - ... friendly visit. This intercourse is so frequent that little straight paths are formed from one vizcachera to another. The extreme attachment between members of different communities makes it appear less strange that they should assist each other : either the desire to see, as usual, their buried neighbours becomes intense enough to impel them to work their way to them ; or cries of distress from the prisoners reach and incite them to attempt their deliverance. Many social species are thus powerfully...
803 페이지 - ... unsuited to them. The natives of the Carmen have no name for the Churinche, but speak of it as a bird wonderful for its beauty and seldom seen. Amongst the dull-plumaged Patagonian species it certainly has a very brilliant appearance. A very few days after their arrival the Churinches pair ; and the male selects a spot for the nest — a fork in a tree from six to twelve feet from the ground, or sometimes a horizontal bough. This spot the male visits about once a minute, sits on it with his splendid...
710 페이지 - ... nook where it might devour the body at leisure. I kept both animals wrapped separately in my handkerchief till the next morning, when, procuring a convenient cage, I first put in the Megaderma, and after observing it some time, I placed the other bat with it. No sooner was the latter perceived, than the other fastened on it with the ferocity of a tiger, again seizing it behind the ear, and made several efforts to fly off with it, but finding it must needs stay within the precincts of the cage,...
480 페이지 - ... les os du nez sont plus forts , plus allongés et plus saillans. Sous ces divers rapports , ce tapir des Andes ressemble davantage à celui de Sumatra , et toutefois indépendamment de la couleur , il en diffère par moins de hauteur proportionnelle de la tête. La tête du tapir des Andes , ainsi que celle du tapir oriental , ressemble plus que celle du tapir ordinaire au paléotherium.
8 페이지 - The wonderful cry whence Mycetes gets its trivial name of Howling Monkey is certainly most striking ; and I have sometimes endeavoured to ascertain how far this cry may be heard. It has taken me an hour or more to thread the forest undergrowth from the time the cry first struck my ear to when, guided by the cry alone, I stood under the tree where the animals were. It would certainly not be over estimating the distance to say two miles.
797 페이지 - ... hind angles of each segment, equidistant from the lateral and posterior edges: ventral segments slightly convex, six are visible behind the coxae, which conceal two and the base of the third. Ventral segments straight, except the last two, which are curved, with the convexity forwards; last segment feebly bisinuate at tip. Coxae flat, not at all prominent; front ones small, subtriangular with rounded angles ; middle coxae similar, but larger ; hind coxae very large, extending to the sides of...
784 페이지 - Report on the Additions to the Society's Menagerie during the Months of June, July, August, and September 1906.
710 페이지 - Chancing one evening to see a rather large bat enter an outhouse from which there was no other egress than by the doorway, I was fortunate in being able to procure a light, and thus proceed to the capture of the animal. Upon finding itself pursued, it took three or four turns round the apartment, when down dropped what at the moment I supposed to be its young, and which I deposited in my handkerchief. After a somewhat tedious chase, I then secured the object of my pursuit, which proved to be a fine...
