35   The mother opossum is never happier than when she has her little ones playing hide-and-seek over her back 38   This young fox came from his home in the woods daily to play with a young fox-terrier. He is now resting after a romp 39   Naosaurus and Dimetrodon, two extinct armour-bearers who should have been well able to protect themselves 50   An armour-bearer of prehistoric times whose shield was an effective protection against enemy horns 51   To the polar bear the ice and snow of the Far North means warmth and protection. The mother bear digs herself into a snowbank, where lives quite comfortably throughout the winter 84   The sharp claws of the ground squirrel are efficacious tools in digging his cosy underground burrow 85   The coyote can readily distinguish whether a herd of sheep is guarded by one or more dogs, and will plan his attack accordingly 94   The zebu, the sacred bull of India, in spite of its domestication, has an agile body and a quick, alert mind 95   Roosevelt's Colobus. These horse-tailed monkeys chatter together in a language exclusively their own, yet they seem to have no difficulty in making themselves understood by other monkey-tribes 112   A tamed deer of Texas, whose constant companion and playmate was a rabbit dog. Between the two, there developed, necessarily, a common language 113   Water-loving animals, like the beavers, seemingly take great pride in their toilets. Their fur is always sleek and clean 122   Great forest pigs of Central Africa. Like the common domesticated hogs, they will seek a clay bath to heal their wounds 123   The Rocky Mountain goat has many means of defence, not the least of which is his agility in climbing to inaccessible places 134   Wild boars are among the most ferocious of animals. By means of their great strength alone they are well able to defend themselves 135   Brontosaurus. The animals that seemed best equipped to defend themselves are the ones that, thousands of years ago, became extinct 144   This prehistoric monster was equipped not only with a pair of strong horns but with a shield back of them as well 145   The beaver is the greatest of all animal architects. His skill is equalled only by his patience (in Colours) 158   The skunk mother tries to keep on hand a good supply of such delicacies as frogs and toads, so that her young may never go hungry 172   The porcupine and the hedgehog have a unique method of collecting food for their young. After shaking down berries or grapes, they roll in them, then hurry home with the food attached to their quills 173   The black bear is not one of the great migrating animals. The thickness of his coat must therefore change with the seasons 188   Rabbits seem to have a well-devised system in their road-building, running their paths in and out of underbrush in a truly ingenious manner [email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected][email protected]#RABBITS"
