Russian Desman
Content: Printed on border: "1/2 nat. size." "The desmans are provided with the typical number of forty-four teeth, and are further characterised by their completely webbed feet, their long trunk-like snout, which projects far in advance of the upper lip, and the elongated scaly tail. The Russian desman (Myogale moschata) is considerably the larger of the two, its total length being about 16 inches, of which some 6 1/2 are occupied by the tail. The fur is dense and thick, like that of an otter, with the outer portion formed of long stiff hairs, and the under-coat soft and wooly." Includes additional text.
