De Anate, & genere eius.

CAP. VIII.

                                        ANAS ab assiduitate natandi dicta, omnibus nota, tamAnas in duplici genere est.
                                        sylvestris quam domestica, alioque modo & genere divisa,
                                        hic veniet annotanda, maxime quod in Septentrionalibus
                                        aquis tanta earum, præsertim sylvestrium, copia est, vt fereAnatum infinita multitudo in aquilone.
                                        cunctas aquas cooperire videantur. Non enim eas aucupes
                                        exturbant, nisi raro: quia anatum carnes frigidæ sunt,
                                        & grossi nutrimenti: immo verius, quia longe melioresCarnes sylvestrium avium meliores.
                                        e sylvestri venatione, quam aquatica, habet carnes. Et licet
                                        anates diversi sint generis, tamen omnes conveniunt in
forma rostri, seu oris lati, & figura pedum membranalium ad natandum, colore secundum
qualitatem regionis ab invicem discrepantes. Domesticæ tamen propeAnates domesticæ fere omnes candidæ.
candidæ sunt vniversæ: sed sylvestres non nisi in tepidis aquis morantur, quarum
subterraneæ venæ calidam quasi sulphuream exhalationem continue subministrant.
Ne tamen glacie constringantur aquæ hujusmodi, naturæ instinctu circulariter,
& oblique natantes, eas aquas servant apertas, tantumque vociferantur,
vt ad magnam viarum distantiam inde audiantur.
Cum vero vehementia frigoris fuerint superatæ, in
sublime se elevant, vastum mare velut vnicum
præsidium pro securissima
statione petentes.
