    Reports on the tendency of 'Foreign Powers' to send wild and exotic beasts to Queen Victoria, who forwarded them to William Tyler at the Surrey Zoological Gardens. Notes that the latter institution is now full up and suggests that Victoria houses the animals in a menagerie and 'wild beast ground' at Buckingham Palace. The illustration depicts several animals, including a giant serpent, birds of prey, and giraffes, in an imaginary menagerie at the palace.
