The Indian elephant (Elephas maximus or indicus). Observe the small size of its ear-flap.
Skeleton of the Indian elephant. Only four toes are visible, the fifth concealed owing to the view from the side.
Babirusa("pig-deer"), the Malay name of the wild swine of Celebes and Buru, which has been adopted in zoology as the scientific designation of this remarkable animal (the only representative of its genus), in the form of Babirusa alfurus.
The Alpine hare or Snow Hare (Lepus timidus, L. variabilis) differs by physique and appearance clearly from the Gewonen Haas. "He is," says Tschudi, "more cheerful, livelier, three-star, has a shorter, rounder, more curvaceous head, a shorter nose, smaller ears (which, pressed against the head, do not reach to the spire of the snout).
North American Porcupine
The Muskrat inhabits the countries of North America, which are located between 30 and 60° N.B. This animal is most common in water-rich Canada and Alaska. The grassy banks of great lakes or of wide, slow-flowing rivers, of silent streams and marshes, are the abodes of this highly sought-after Rat for its fur; prefers to settle on the sides of not too large, reed-covered ponds.
The Marmot (Arctomys marmota)can, including the 11 cM. longtail, a length of 62 cM. at a shoulder height of 15 cM. Through stature and physique she resembles her relatives. The hair, which consists of short wool hair and longer upper hair, is dense, abundant and quite long; the colour is brown-black at the top to a greater or lesser extent, broken on the crown and back by some whitish dots, in the neck, at the root of the tail and at the whole underside dark reddish brown, on the legs, the sides of the torso and at the rear even lighter, at the snout and at the feet rust yellowish white.
The most famous species of this genus, the Lemming (Myodes lemmus, Lemmus norwegicus) reaches a total length of 15 cM., of which at most 2 will be on the tail stump. The richly stuffed, long-haired coat exhibits a very graceful sign. In the case of the brownish-yellow ground colour, which is fitted in the neck with wave lines, dark spots protrude; two yellow stripes stretch from the eyes to the rear. The tail and legs are yellow, the parts yellowish, almost sandy.
The Jumping Hare inhabits shabby tracts and even desert-like steppes. It has spread over much of South Africa, occurs in the west at least to the width of Angola and in the east certainly still in German East Africa. In cape land it is very frequent in some places, as in mountain regions as in open plains, sometimes these animals are found in such a large number that they form real colonies. In a similar way to his relatives, he digs subterranean long-aisle dwellings, which are usually heavily branched and located at a short distance from the surface and lead to a larger depth. Usually such a dwelling serves up residence to several couples, yes even to whole families.
Over the day, the Hazel mouse is sleeping in one or another shelter, the night she goes to find her food, which consists of nuts, acorns, hard seeds, juicy fruits, berries and buds of trees; prefers, however, to eat hazelnuts, which she artfully opens and empties, without picking them or removing them from the nap. She also seeks thrush berries and is therefore not infrequently caught in thrush snares.
The members of the genus Hare (Lepus)are distinguished by ears, which are almost as long as the head, by the shortness of the thumb of the forefeet, the large length of the hind legs (almost double those of the forelegs), the upward-facing tail stump, and the 6 molars in each upper jaw half (in the lower jaw there are 5 on each side).
The Hare Mouse depicted on this page (Lagidium Cuvieri) inhabits the high plains of southern Peru and Bolivia and is close to the stature and size of a Rabbit. Her coat is very soft and long-haired.
The propagation area of the Hamster extends from the Rhine to the Ob. In the southern and southwestern parts of Germany, he is missing, as well as in East and West Prussia; on the other hand, he is frequently in Thuringia and Saxony. In the countries on the Mediterranean Sea, in England, Denmark and Scandinavian, he is unknown. A soil, which is moderately solid, dry and also fertile, best meets it. He avoids all sandy regions; In order not to encounter too many objections when digging, he does not settle on a very fasting on stony soil. He doesn't like mountain regions and forests, nor does he like wetlands. Wherever he occurs, he is frequently found, sometimes even in unbelievable scissors.
The Guinean Piglet is one of the most sought-after pets in the whole rodent order, as it does not set high levels, as because of its harmlessness and benignness. If it is given a fresh and dry berth, it can be easily kept alive everywhere. It feeds on the most diverse plant substances; all parts of the plant from the roots to the leaves, seeds as well as fresh juicy plant parts are to its taste
