Content: Written on border: "Nov. 30, 1833" Printed on border: "The hedgehog is sometimes introduced into houses to destroy beetles; and has been so far tamed as to turn a spit, by means of a small wheel, and to answer to its name. By the Calmuc Tartars it is much esteemed, and kept in a domesticated state in their huts, instead of cats, for the purpose of driving away vermin; but its smell is so powerful and disgusting, as to render it an unpleasant inmate in a house." "Hedge-hogs live in pairs, and the females usually produce four or five young in the spring : their nest is large, and composed chiefly of moss and grass." Includes additional text.
