Notes
Content : Printed on border: "On moderately soft ground it can hardly be captured, for it gathers all its legs under its body, and employs its digging claws with such extraordinary vigour that it sinks into the ground as if by magic. The echidna is tolerably widely spread over the sandy wastes of Australia, but has not been seen in the more northern portions of that country."
