Notes
Content : Printed on border: "American Magazine of Useful Knowledge v.2, 1835" "It is aquatic in its habits, but seeks the tranquil streams and waters, and makes deep burrows in the banks." "Like other aquatic mammalia, it is covered with a double coat of fur, the inner one being soft and short, and almost waterproof." "But the head is the most wonderful part of the animal. It does not terminate in a snout, as in other animals of the kind, but is continued into a beak, resembling that of a duck, broad, compressed, and rounded at the lip..." Includes additional text. Foxing on image.
