    Notes that while 'Everybody has a passing acquaintance with the Plesiosaurus, the Megatherium, and so forth', this species 'is only to be found at Castle Hedingham' and resembles a Tory squire, who once 'talked to the agricultural interest' and who strongly upholds the Protestant foundations of 'true conservatism'. Believes the power of the jaw in this species is greater than the power of the swing of the megalosaurus's tail.
