Of the Digitigrada there are the otter or water-dog, the musang and climbing musang, the civet cat, the royal tiger, the spotted black tiger, in whose glossy raven-black coat the characteristic markings are seen in certain lights; the tiger cat, the leopard, the Java cat, and four or five others. Many of these feline animals abound.
Many circumstances respecting their ravages, and the modes of destroying them, will occur in the course of the work. THE MUSANG, A SPECIES OF VIVERRA. W. Bell delt. A. Cardon fc.
