The tail, produced, has long and bristly hairs about the tip and on the upper side. Anterior feet five-toed; posterior feet four-toed, the nails small and subfalcular; the tail rather long. This is the well known fur-bearing chinchilla, the skins of which are so much used in the winter dress of ladies." Includes additional text.
