Abstract

The following paper on the existence of large animals, (probably fresh water seals) in the upland lakes of Tasmania, prepared by C. Gould, Esq., F.G.S., was, in Mr. Gould's absence, read at the last meeting of the Royal Society: — I wish to lay before the Society a statement of facts, which is full of interest and surprise, and which will show, if corroborated by further investigations, that the existence of rare, perhaps undescribed, animals may be generally unknown, and entirely so to science, for long periods after the occupation of a country.
