De modo piscandi Cetos, & Balenas.


CAP. XV.


                                        QVIA mira aviditate balena fertur in esum halecis, & vitulorum
                                        marinorum, tanquam piscium cæteris omnibusBalena arenis ob aviditatem vorandi immersa capitur.
                                        pinguiorum: idcirco sæpius periclitatur in scopulis arenosis,
                                        qui maris æstu, sive fluxu, atque refluxu, quasi denudati
                                        ab aquis, immersæ beluæ exitum non concedunt,
                                        vt se recipiat ad gurgitem propinquiorem: vnde tanto cum
                                        impetu fortitudine caudæ laborat, quod fossa amplissima
                                        relicta, veluti in nido ligata ( obstantibus vndique arenis )Piscatores congregantur ad prædam capiendam.
                                        enatare non possit. Hoc cum piscatoribus innotuerit, turmatim
accurrunt, funibus atque anchoris fortissimis ( ne æstus reditu eos evadat )intra
rictum oris, atque capitis spiracula, seu branchias, bestiam hanc ligant: magnaquep
manu, multiplicatisque viribus eam in littus attrahunt, vel ita constringunt, vt nulla
etiam magna potentia in aquas resilire valeat. Eoque casu feliciter arridente, divisa
præda, quisque regreditur ad alias domesticas occupationes, donec iterum occurratBeluæ tempestatibus in littus agitantur.
similimus, vel alius optatior quæstus. Saneque in tempestatibus contingit, vt
aliqua immanis belua, vi inimicæ bestiæ vulnerata, vel fatigata, seu cunctis viribus
destituta, ventorum vi ad littus proiiciatur, præda vt sit occupantibus eam. VerumCautela ne præda in mare evadat.
vbi dubitatur quod illi redituræ sint vire, gladiolos, aut grandes acutissimoseque
tribulos sub latus quiescentis immittunt, vt sanguine impetuoso ferri
motu effluente, vita destituatur. Accidit etiam, & quidem facilius, Balena profunde dormiens facilime capitur.
quod beluam in arena ad objectum solis profundissimem dormientem,
funibus & anchoris ita firment, vt in prædam
venantibus cedat.
