Sacred Tree. The only other animal whichwe saw in any number was a small fox: I suppose this animal preyson the mice and other small rodents which, as long as there is theleast vegetation, subsist in considerable numbers in very desertplaces. Many kinds of fineevergreen trees, and plants with a tropical character, here takethe place of the gloomy beech of the southern shores. To obtain theacacia-leaves they crawl up the low stunted trees; and it is notuncommon to see a pair quietly browsing, whilst seated on a branchseveral feet above the ground. The varieties of manseem to act on each other in the same way as different species ofanimals--the stronger always extirpating the weaker. At last, seeingthe balls cut and strike the trees, they ran away, and we were leftin peace and quietness. We slept at the house of my guide atCanelones. An ewe is held three or four times a day forthe little thing to suck, and a nest of wool is made for it in thesheep-pen; at no time is it allowed to associate with other dogs,or with the children of the family.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
