The Sea-hare

"The Sea-Hare is found to be of divers kinds in the Ocean, but so soon

as he is caught, onely because he is suspected to be Venemous, how like

so ever he is to a Hare, he is let loose again. He hath four Fins behind

his Head, two whose motion is all the length of the fish, and they are

long, like to a Hare's ears, and two again, whose motion is from the

back, to the depth of the fishes belly, wherewith he raiseth up the

weight of his head. This Hare is formidable in the Sea; on the Land he

is found to be as timorous and fearful as a hare."
