Punch's Reptile House



News-Commentary, Drollery


Zoological Gardens, Human Species, Zoology

    Reports on the latest additions to the reptile house at the Zoological Society Gardens and observes that the 'spectacle' suggests the notion of a 'Social Reptile House' which would house such 'creeping varieties of the human race' as attorneys, 'slander-mongering journalists', and 'dishonest politicians'.
