THE collection of living animals belonging to the Zoological Society of London and kept in their gardens in the Regent's Park contains, as most of the readers of NATURE are probably aware, by far the largest and most nearly complete living series of representatives of the various classes of Vertebrate animals that has ever been brought together in one spot. Great as the exertions that have been made of late years in some of the corresponding establishments on the Continent, the sister societies have never succeeded in rivalling the English collection as a whole, although they have occasionally bid fair to surpass it in some particular point.
