676        DE AVIBUS.

contra omnium volucrum genus in cauda pedes habentes, ita vt stando in terra
Aves aquaticæ virtute divina fiunt terrestres. (quod rarius accidit) sicut homo gestu pectoris erigantur: quas aves beatus Martinus
divina virtute coëgit aquam contra naturam suam deferere, & arida loca, ac
deserta pefere, prout alibi habetur, quod S. Hieronymus lionem asino custodem deputavit.
Leo custos asini. Horum pulli statim vt ova exeunt, tanto vigore pollent, vt si matrem eos
perdere contigerit, virtute propria vivant: hyemeque pinguiores sunt, propter paucitatem
Animal sereno aëre gaudet. motus: quia omnem animal sereno aëre gaudet, & in eo plus vagatur: sed
multo magis frigore vrgente, quando frequentissimos faciunt motus circulares, &
Nepa. quadratos, ne congeletur aqua, prout superius de anate dicebatur. Nepa est avis
longi rostri, cinerei coloris, vt perdix in dorso, & in ventie vt nisus. Hæc susceptura
cibum, in luto tantum rostrum infigit, vt nisi pede illud extrahat, persecutoribus suis
fiat præda: & ideo in die quiescit, & nocte ac aurora cibos quærendo vagatur, etiam
currendo: & ita capitur retibus, propter carnis dulcedinem, præsertim quæ minor
est, instar turturis hyeme latitans in cavernis. Aquatica vero major, gemitum importuno
indicat tempestates.

De Onocrotalo.

CAP. XXXII.

                                        ONOCROTALVS in numero aquatilium, multas
                                        in ventre recondens escas, & postea extrahens, & manducans,
                                        habet similitudinem oloris: nec differre existimaretur,
                                        nisi faucibus inesset alterius vten genus. Hue omina inexplebile
Onacrotal’ animal inexplebile.                                         animal congerit, mira capacitate, vt mox perfecta rapina
                                        sensim inde in os reddita, deferat in aluum ruminantis modo.
                                        Avis hæc rapax est, & longi ac serracilis rostri,
                                        instar oloris: quod in aquam, vel terræ lutum infigit, &
                                        quasi cornu sonans, horribilem sonum emitit. Suntque
duo genera, aquaticum, & sylvestre: & vtrunque inter aves splene caret. Folliculos
Hieronymus de onocrotali natura loquitur. magnos in gutture habet: quibus primo cibus mollificatur: deinde ventri, vt digeratur,
transmittitur. Alia cibi receptacula non habet. Ideoque in aquis potius vivit.
Gallia etiam Septentrionalis hanc aveni habet: cujus quoque Hieronymus meminit,
quod fixo in pulvere rostro horrende clamat. In Oriente reperitur etiam hæc
