About

Studies of a 'Skeleton of a Crocodile or the Leviathan' ('Given by Sir Robert Southwell; to whom it was sent from the East-Indies'); 'An Elephant's Tusk'; a 'Rattle Snak's Tail' (the rattle of a rattlesnake); and 'The Wesan' (windpipe) of a crocodile. Table 4 from the book Musaeum Regalis Societatis; or, A catalogue and description of the natural and artificial rarities belonging to the Royal Society, and preserved at Gresham Colledge, by Nehemiah Grew (second printing: London, 1686). The Royal Society's museum collection, or Repository, was established in the 1660s.
