Notes
Content : Printed on border: "Lemur catta, Lin. --Le mococo, Buff." "The ring-tailed macauco is a very beautiful animal, about the size of a cat. Its body and limbs are long and slender; its tail very long, and marked with alternate bars of black and white ; in the conformation of its paws, it seems to approach the monkey kind; but its nose is long and sharp, like that of a fox, and its ears are also large and pointed : its head and throat are white; eyes large, and surrounded with black : its fur is glossy, soft, and delicate, of a reddish ash colour on the back; belly white."
