De Vulpibus, & earum dolis.

CAP. XXXVII.

                                        QVOD vulpes, sicuti & lepores, infinita multitudine,
                                        atque in colore mutabiles, in Septentrionalibus terris reperiantur,
                                        iam satis est dictum, vt & hoc mirabilis naturæ
Vulpium colores varii.                                         spectaculum consyderetur. Sunt igitur in Septentrionalibus
                                        sylvis vulpes nigræ, candidæ, rubeæ, crucigeræ in dorso,
                                        aliæque cœlestino colore respersæ: omnes tamen in eadem
Pelles nigræ.                                         malitia, atque astutia participantes. Nigræ pelles pretiosiores
                                        cæteris æstimantur: quia Moschovitarum Principes frequentius
                                        his vtuntur, vt superius lib. XI. cap. X. de receptione
Pelles crucigeræoratorum alienigenarum declaratur. Deinde crucigeræ pelles, hoc est, quæ nigra
cruce dorsotenus sunt a natura signatæ, propter majorem ornatum, & pellium magnitudinem:
Vestitus principum. quam non nisi in maturiore ætate vulpes consequitur. Hæque pelles,
vti nigræ, magno commercio Moschovitarum, & Russorum, & Tartarorum appretiantur:
quamvis nigræ annexam habent suspicionem, quod atro colore, fumo videlicet
picearum tedarum sint adulteratæ, prout superius lib. VI. cap. vltimo plura enarrata
Pelles albæ. videntur, atque hoc eodem lib. cap. XX. de pellibus mardurinis, zebellinis,
seu zapherinis. Candictæ pelles minoris sunt reputationis, & coloris cœlestini,
aut asurini, propter multitudinem, & pilorum casum: minus enim cutibus adhærentes
durant. Attamen qui curiositati student, aut vtilitati, mixtura diversarum
pellium operimenta arcendi frigoris pro vsu dormientium conficiunt: quia magnum
Pelles rubeæ. calorem cito inductum conservant, levesque sunt, senioribus convenientes. Rubeæ
vulpes prædictis omnibus frequentiores, vbique reperiuntur, facileque vestigiis
post se in nivibus relictis, venatorum sagacitate, & canum celeritate
capiuntur, prout & lepores, vrsi, cervi, lupi, lynces
propriis vestigiis se venatoribus produnt: æstate
vero odore canum.
