De Tragelapho. cap. 101.
TRagelaphus is called Hircoceruus also, & hath that name Tragelaphus of Tragos, yt is a goat bucke, & Elephos, that is an hart, as Isid. saith, lib. 12. And be called Tragelaphi among ye Gréeks: and some be of the kind of an Hart, and haue rough eares as Goat buckes, and rough chins with beards. Aristotle li. 2. speaketh of them and sayth, that some wild beasts haue crooked hornes, as Hir∣coceruus, yt is called Tragelaphus also, & hath soles in the féet: & his body wax∣eth to the quantity of an hart: and this beast beareth downeward his face, and hath hornes lyke vnto an Hart Calfe.
(*Tragelaphus, whose name is not common, is like a Goate, but he is not bearded, his hornes are bending more compasse then the Goat, headed as a Ram, both in forehead and ears, white as a shéepe, sauing his brest is blackish, bending necke, as the Déere. The lear∣ned haue named this beast Tragela∣phum, this beast is wholsome to eate, ye hide and hornes for sundrye purposes. Gesner, who supposeth it a kind of deere,in folio Appendix.
