Notes
Content : Printed on border: "Cricetus laniger, Desm." "This interesting animal, which produces the fur which passes under its name, is a species of field mouse, and is common in the high plains of Chili and Peru. It is about nine inches in length, and has a tail about half the length of its body. It sits upon its haunches, and takes its food in its fore paws like a squirrel. It feeds chiefly upon bulbous roots." Foxing on image.
