Shelf locator: PC ANI-(C)
Content : Foxing on image. Printed on border: "Is about the size of a hog of twelve months' growth." "This animal, thus made for the water, swims there like an otter, seeks the same prey, and seizes the fish with its feet and teeth, and carries them to the edge of the lake to devour them with the greater ease. It lives also upon fruits, corn, and sugar-canes. As its legs are broad and flat, it often sits upright upon its hind legs." "The cabiai is quiet and gentle; it is neither quarrelsome nor ferocious with other animals. It is easily tamed, comes at call, and willingly follows the hand that feeds it." Includes additional text.
