  • South American Aguti and Paca – 1820

    South American Aguti and Paca – 1820

    An original hand coloured engraving using the stipple technique published as part of the “Dictionniare des Sciences Naturelles” by Dumont de Saint-Croix published in Paris c1820’s. Engraved by Stranhi after an image by Pretre.

    At the time the Aguti (Agouti) and Paca were thought to be of the same family group … not so now .. they have different toe arrangements etc.

    They are however, both herbivorous rodents and among the largest in the world.

    The Paca can achieve a weight of 14kg on a good diet and is the more attractive with its sides patterned with spots and stripes. There are two distinct types … the lowland variety cab be found all the way from Northern Argentina to Mexico. A smaller Paca lives in the northern Andes and the Paramo grasslands.

    The Agouti is generally a smaller animal weighing in around 4 kgs. They are pretty shy compared with the Paca and pretty scared of humanoids. They prevail over much of the middle and north of South America and in the West Indies.

    Price $160.00 framed in Voyager Natural History style ….

    South American Rodents – rather cute – and large

  • Australian Natural History Trade Cards

    Australian Natural History Trade Cards

    A group of five natural history trade cards all from different sources two of which are circa 100 year old (Wills and Liebig).

    Bright and clean the largest being Liebig’s Black Cockatoo which is 116mm by 70mm.

    Two cards represents the Tasmanian Devil and the narrative on both sadly reflects an earlier period when their numbers were reduced as a result on attacks on poultry and sheep. The Platypus looks like the larger Tasmanian type and is curiously described as a Duckbill or Platypus. The Bennett’s Wallaby is shown feeding and carrying a joey.

    Nice mixed group – Australian wildlife theme

    $50.00
