An Interesting Animal That Inhabits Death Valley. Another most interesting animal that in habits Death Valley is the kangaroo rat, which makes its way about by jumping. It has long and powerful hind legs and a surprisingly long tail. Its color varies from light gray to dark brown, according to whether it frequents the alkali or the lava, nature intending to protect it from capture by the likeness of its hue to its surroundings. The kangaroo rat lives in burrows, sans the San Francisco Examiner, as doss likewise a smaller kind that is coin. monly callesd the kangaroo mouse. int neither It in any true sense a monoe or a rat; they belong to families quite different. reva theoes, there are plent, of real rats In Death valley, as the expedition has found. One kind that lives in the chapar ral, with hare tails and sequisite soft fur, is the staple food of the Digger Indiana who dwell in the mountains and therno- boots. The latter catch these beasts with does, frightening them out of their nests, which are made, like those of squirrels, of great size, in the hushes or bunches of cactus. With respect to lte kangaroo rats, one extraordinary point should be mentioned, relating to a certain development of their skulls, which bulge out at the side in a sur prising way. In fact, no such big bulges as these, which contain the heariig ahpa ratus, are to oe found in any other known animals. One of lbs most curious sort of rodents common In I oath valley is the "scorpion mouse," which lives almost wholly upon scorpions. By the "instinct," which means experience inherited through generations, it has learned whicu end to tackle its prey by. Another creature in the same region that likes scorpions also is the "chaparral cock," which gobbles them up by thou sands, and is not lose fond of centipedos, tarantulas, lizards and horned toads. 'The last named are too big to swallow at a gulp, and so the fowl tears them to pieres before devouring them. Perhaps the most beautiful mouse In existence is found in Death valley, known as the ni grashopper mouse." It is a lovely beast, fawn-col ored in the back, with a snowy belly and sides, a short tail and pretty little ears. Other mammals f or warded hither from thence are "pocket mice," with pouches outside their throats to stow provisions in, gophers, weasels, shrews and a newly-discovered species of lavender-gray fox with long ears. A won derfally big species of coyote boa been found in the valley. One funny thing about this kind of an animal is that it Is enormously fond of watermelons, hut it has to starv, for them out there. 0. K. T.-Bsnesi Results.-O. K. T.
