The Medieval Bestiary

Este bestiario no se si me convence más de que la Edad Media era realmente el oscurantismo... or just really funny:

Descripción de castor con imagenes:

The beaver is hunted for its testicles, which are valued for making medicine. When the beaver sees that it cannot escape from the hunter, it bites off its testicles and throws them to the hunter, who the stops pursuing the beaver. If another hunter chases the beaver, it shows the hunter that it has already lost its testicles and so is spared.

The allegory is that those who want to live a proper life should cut themselves off from sin, so that the devil, seeing nothing he wants, does not pursue.

una lección al final...

ah y el diablo quiere testículos aparentemente.
