De natura Taxorum.

CAP. XXII.

                                        VISI sunt superioribus capitulis fibri, sive castores, quomodo
                                        domos structuri in aquis, vnum videlicet alterius societatisCastorum natura.
                                        profugum, vel alienigenam, in lignis comportandis,
                                        ad terram supinum statuunt, ventrique eius onus pedibus
                                        constringendum imponunt, ac demum eundem pertrahunt
                                        in locum destinatum. Iti præsenti cap. similis naturæ sagacitas
                                        apparet, in animalibus, quæ Taxi dicuntur. HiTaxorum natura.
                                        enim, quia in specubus, ac subterraneis antris naturaliter
                                        habitant, mansionem mirabili modo confingunt, ita videlicet,
vt vnum taxum constituant terræ pedibus suis effossæ vectorem: qui supinatus
extensis cruribus, & erectis, supra ventrem suum terra effosa accumulatur, oneraturque:
per pedes ab aliis exportantur: totiesque hoc faciunt, quousque mansionis latitudo habitatoribus
sufficere possit. Sed habitationem hujusmodi tanto labore partam, non
sine difficultate postea tuentur. Primam namque hostilitatem patiuntur ab insidiis vulpeculæ: Vulpeculæ insidiosæ.
quæ cum domum nunquam fabricat, dolis confisa malignis & solitis, taxorum
foveam ingreditur, ac fœtore stercoris tantum inquinat, vt horrore suam domum relinquere
cogantur, & securitatem. Attamen ne insidiosæ vulpis impunita perduretVulpeculæ captæ excoriant.
astutia, sæpissime venatorum industria canum proditione comprehenditur,
& excoriatur. Profecto æqua lex esset, vt alienæ possessionis
invasores partes, vulpium fierent, qui vulpium insidias,
& mores maris artibus imitari conantur. Partes vulpium fient.
