Science Art: Ordo Fecundus (Steinfurz und Flidermaus), 1553

Taken from ‘Icones Animalium Quadruped Viviparorum et Oviparorum’ by Conrad Gessner ( 1516-1565 )Click to embiggen slightly

An owl and a bat, in German and Latin, as presented by Conrad Gessner in Icones Animalium Quadruped Viviparorum et Oviparorum.

This may have been more timely on Halloween, but really, it’s been available since the 16th century. Any day is a good day… or any night is a good night, really… for Owl and Bat.
