Przevalsky's Horse


IT seems worth while to point out the close resemblance between the figure of this horse in NATURE for August 21 and those found incised on antlers in the cave of La Madelaine, copied in Dawkins' “Early Man.” There is the same massive head, the same hog-mane, absence of forelock, pointed ears, short body, and powerful legs, while there seems even an indication thay the long hairs of the tail spring first from the middle of that organ. In that from Cresswell Crags, as well as those from La Madelaine, the jaw is heavier than in the recent specimen.
