The wanderoo is too grave and melancholy to be trained to these drolleries.
I am induced to believe that the wanderoo must have been one of the monkeys which were brought to Solomon, for two reasons.
The low country wanderoo is replaced in the hills by the larger species, P. ursinus, which inhabits the mountain zone.
Another reason for conjecturing that the wanderoo would have been one of the animals sent to grace the palace of Solomon is this.
The docility of the wanderoo often vanishes together with its youth.
And, in point of fact, in the island there are no less than four animals, each of which is entitled to the name of "wanderoo."
