The Performing Fish

We this week give an Illustration of the Talking Fish, an account of which appeared in a previous Number.

This extraordinary amphibious creature is by this time probably as well known to our readers as to ourselves. It has, we believe, excited much curiosity, and been visited by multitudes. Though now tame and domestic, it is naturally ferocious. It is certainly remarkable for its size and weight measuring twelve feet in length, and weighing eight hundredweight. It has two rows of teeth and is covered with fine hair. It eats nearly forty five pounds of fish per diem Its fins are curious. They resemble hands, and will bend and develop a hand with joints like the human wrists and elbows.

At command it presents either the right or left to its keeper. At night it reposes on damp boards, and will exist for days out of the water. Its eyes are, as we have already stated, large, bright beautiful, and intelligent. It is, however, generally allowed that the term "fish" is partly a misnomer the animal is. in fact a specimen of the small tailed seal, Phoca leptonyx of De Blainville, the Stenochynchus leptonyx of Fred. Cuvier, and described as such by Dr. Hamilton, in the eigthvolume of “The Naturalist's Library”; referred to also by Professor Owen under the same name in the twelfth volume of “The Annals of Natural History” (1843, p. 331), but not the specie described and figured under that name by Dr. Gray in the illustrations to the voyage of the Erubus and Terror, and mentioned in the British Museum Catalogue by the same authority, to which he has given the trivial name of the “Sea Leopard” For these references we are indebted to the Manchester Examiner and Times which appears to have taken great pains with the subject.

The same critic states that “the brain cavity is large, and the brain highly convoluted, being ranked by Professor Owen in the highest of his animal brain types” The species, however is rare in the museums, and certainly singular as an exhibition. It is an Antarctic species, and a veritable reality. On its first announcement the public probably suspected some trick, but the affair is perfectly genuine, and one that to the naturalist is of great interest.
