Histrix

Fontes:

125 Hystrices generat India et Africa, spinea contectas cute irenaceorum genere, sed hystrici longiores aculei et, cum intendit cutem, missiles. ora urgentium figit canum et paulo longius iaculatur. hibernis autem se mensibus condit, quae natura multis et ante omnia ursis.

[12.2.35] Histrix animal in Africa erinacii simile, vocatum ab stridore spinarum, quas tergo laxatas emittit ut canes vulneret insequentes.
