Zoological Gardens, Animal Behaviour, Zoology

    Represents some of strange behaviour of animals at the Zoological Society Gardens. These include a 'Terrific Encounter in the Aquarium between the Lobster and the Jack', an ostrich having its head locked into a hole at night because it is so used to hiding it in the sand during the day, an elephant with a trumpet bell on the end of its trunk (a 'Study of the Elephant in the Act of "Trumpetting"'), and a pig and an elephant, 'distant blood relations', 'turning up their noses at each other'.
