Σελίδα 48 - What are called the legs of birds, in this are covered before with large scales. The end of the foot is cloven, and has two very large toes, which like the leg, are covered with scales. These toes are of unequal sizes. The largest, which is on the inside, is seven inches long, including the claw, which is near three-fourths of an inch in length, and almost as broad.

Σελίδα 42 - The asses of Arabia," says Chardin, " are perhaps the handsomest animals in the world ; their coat is smooth and clean ; they carry the head elevated, and have fine and well-formed legs, which they throw out gracefully in walking or galloping.
