Image text[edit]

Transcribed German: Nach Christiegeburt / 1513. Jar Adi 1. May hat man dem grossmechtigisten König Emanuel von Portugal / gen Lysabona aus India pracht / ain solch lebendig Thier. das nennen sie Rhinocerus / Das ist hie mit all seiner gestalt abconterfect. Es hat ein Farb wie ein gepsreckelte [sic] Schildkrot / und ist vom dicken schalen uberleget sehr fest / und ist in der gröss als der heillfandt / aber niderichter von baynen und sehr wehrhafftig[.] es hat ein scharffstark horn vorn auff der Nassen / das begundt es zu werzen wo es bey staynen ist / das da ein Sieg Thir ist / des Heilffanten Todtfeyndt. Der Heillfandt fürchts fast ubel / den wo es Ihn ankompt / so laufft Ihm das Thir mit dem kopff zwischen die fordern bayn / und reist den Heilffanten unten am bauch auff / und er würget ihn / des mag er sich nicht erwehren. dann das Thier ist also gewapnet / das ihm der Jeilffandt [sic] nichts Thun kan / Sie sagen auch / das der Rhinocerus / Schnell / fraytig / und auch Lustig / sey.

Translation: Since Christ's birth / year 1513. A[nno ]D[omin]i, on 1 May there was brought to the most puissant King Emanuel of Portugal / to Lisbon from India / just such a living animal. they call it Rhinocerus / It is reproduced here in its complete form. It has a color like a speckled turtle / and [it] is covered very securely with thick scales / and in size it is like the elephant / but shorter in the legs and very well fortified[.] it has a sharp strong horn on the front of the nose / which it takes to whetting wherever there are stones / [They say] that it is a triumphant animal / the elephants' deadly enemy. The elephant fears it terribly / because when he comes upon it / the animal runs at him with the head between the front legs / and tears the elephant's belly from beneath / and that kills him / who could not defend himself. for the animal is so well armed / that the elephant can do nothing to him / They also say, that the Rhinocerus / is quick / glad-tempered / and also lusty.
