AARD-WOLF, the Proteles Lalandii, a singular carnivorous animal, first brought from south Africa by the traveler Delalande. It forms the connecting link between three genera widely separated from each other, having externally the appearance and bone structure of the hyena united to the head and feet of the fox, with the intestines of the civet.
