Notes in the Zoological Gardens



Notes, Drollery


Zoological Gardens, Zoology, Animal Behaviour, Ornithology, Religion

    A series of eccentric observations and suggestions concerning animals at the Zoological Society Gardens, most of which play on the names of the animals. For example, advises that 'Because you are a good Protestant, do not be deterred from going into the most popular building in the gardens, on account of the Capuchins. There is no intention of perverting the Monkey House into a Monkery', and 'Immediately after seeing the Lyre-bird, go and look at the Harpy'.
