The Great-Eared Monkey, p.37.

[Three Hundred Animals Contents]

HAS large, erect, square ears, and a swarthy flesh-coloured naked face; he is somewhat larger than the common squirrel, and his hair is soft, thick and shaggy, of a well temperated mixture of orange and black. The hands and feet are of a light orange shade, and his tail is double the length of his body. He possesses, as well as the rest of the Monkey tribe, very quick eyes, and beautiful white teeth; but like some others who, with him, are natives of America, he has no pouches in the mouth, and the hind part of his body is covered with hair as well as the rest.
