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.
