This audio guide for Zoos and Natural History Museums gives a retrospective view on how humans perceived and described animals throughout the last 2350 years. All quotations are marked by strange, sometimes erroneous conceptions and misinterpretations of the seen; often inflicted by the author's intense impressions during the primal encounter with an unknown creature, as well as his general dependence on established belief and knowledge systems, that guided the birth of modern zoology.
