De Lyncibus, & pellibus eorundem.

CAP. XII.

</table>                                        LYNCES in Septentrionalibus sylvis non adeo frequentes
                                        generantur, vt lupi, licet impares haud sint in aviditate
                                        prædarum. Quod autem Plinius lib. VIII. cap.
Lyncurium.                                         XXXVIII, asserit, eorum vrina gemmam lyncurium
                                        vocatam, instatque carbunculi rutilantem, humi defossam gemerari,
                                        atque in succinum converti, verisimile non videtur,
                                        vt cum hæc bestia aliis invidens, vrinam suam arena,
Opinio succini generati refellitur.                                         vel terra opertam, profundius claudat: quo nunquam
                                        perveniunt muscæ, ranæ, araneæ, vermes, bruchi, culices,
neque formicæ: quæ passim in succino omnium colore variato, inclusæ videntur,
prout superius lib. XII, cap. VIII. IX. ac XX. diffusius est ostensum. Nec lyncum
transitus est prope rivos, vel aquas, sed campos, & sylvas: vnde lyncurium, sive
succinum inde generatum ad mare, & deinde vt tempestatum in tot millibus librarum,
in littora Prutenica detrudi, & colligi posse, credibile non sit. Natura igitur
Natura lyncis. lyncis est, vt non respiciat retro, sed continuo progressu, & saltu præcipitet cursum.
Cibus illi sylvestrium cattorum frequentior, aut suavior est: quia sicut illis libentius
Pelles lyncinæ. vescitur, ita & eorum latibulis, vt rapiat, insidiantur. Pelles eius mollioribus plumis,
& pulchrioribus maculis præditæ, satis care venduntur, præsertim in
Pelles in frigore meliores. asperrima hyeme prædatæ: tunc enim in virtute, & colore sunt
aptiores, vti æstate viliores, immo deteriores. Qualiter autem
& hæ, & aliæ pelles falsificentur, videat qui
velit, supradictos VI. lib. cap. vltimo.
