Underneath, the skidl looks very long ; the hinder nostril openmg is small, and the palate is arched. As the animal eats a variety of food, and tights often, his lower jaw is very strong. It is large and wide beliind, and compressed in front. The chin is deep, and so is the side of the jaw close to it, but further back it is less so; and the joint process (condyle) is -wide and very flat usually. The lower canines are not as large as the upper, and they fit into a space (diastema) in fiont of the great canines of the upper jaw. The back teeth are remai-kaVjle for their size, the la.st in the lower jaw haTng five points, and the others four. The tooth (pre-molar) next to the canine is pushed backwards and sharpened in a curious manner by the action of the gi-eat upper canine, which comes down in front of it when the jaw is closed. The Baboons are found widely dispersed about Africa, and those which have been best observed live on the west coast, on the east in Abyssinia, and extending downwards to the neighbourhood of the Cape of Good Hope. Frequenting mountains and woody places, and rather avoiding forest land, they come within range of the gi-eat Camivora of the plains and uplands, and sufier in consequence, the Leopard especially making the young its prey whenever it has an opportunity. They extend into Arabia. A little black one, differing in its kind from its African congeners, lives in the Island of Celebes, in the Philippines, and in the Islet of Batchian, close by. Some kinds differ but slightly from one another, and those of one part of the a^rican continent appear to resemble those of other portions in their several shapes and habits, and yet to have different-coloured hair, hence much confusion has arisen regarding the races of the species of the genus.
