It is not part of the project to provide a definitive edition of the text of the Bestiary, but to help readers by providing a transcription and translation of the text. Currently the following editorial conventions obtain:
Pricking and ruling are visible.
The beaver, The ibex.
The beaver is a gentle animal whose testicles have a medicinal value. When hunted, the beaver escapes with his life by biting off his testicles. If he is hunted for a second time he shows his incompleteness and is spared. The ibex has two enormously strong horns. If it jumps from the top of a mountain, its body is held safe by its horns.
Damage to the beaver image is caused by pricking for pouncing on f.11v. Pricking and ruling visible. Initial indicators 'e,e' in the right margin. Initials type 2.
