Abstract

The majority of our indigenous mammals are gradually but surely becoming extinct, and, therefore, observations on their habits of life, though possibly of but trivial interest now, will in a few generations, be eagerly sought for and be as valuable then as a few authentic notes on the manners and customs of the Dodo or the Moa would now be to us.
