Notes
Content : Printed on border: "Genus Myoxus." "Of the European species the largest is the squirrel-tailed dormouse (M. glis)… easily recognised by its thick, bushy tail (as shown in the left-hand figure of our illustration), in which the hairs are arranged in two rows. This species is further characterised by the large size of its cheek-teeth, in which the grinding surfaces of the crowns are flat, and the foldings of the enamel complex. The length of the head and body is a little over 6, and that of the tail rather less than 5, inches. The thick and soft fur is of an ashy-grey colour, more or less shaded with dark brown above…" Includes additional text.
