Eagles when played to become seri

Captive coyotes whet music is played
will range themselves in a half-circle
and listen with the greatest attention.
Snakes like the bagpipes played soft

raised head and gently sway to and fro.
Lionesses ore affected most by the

Just as music has different effects on
different natures, so it acts differently
upon animals of varying species. Weird
music is more successful in attracting
the attention of animals than that of
the louder and harsher instruments.
The blare of a trumpet only infuriates
them, while of the cornet and flageolet
they take not the least notice. Bag
pipes and the violin are afforded atten
tion and interest.
