Wie sie die Crocodilen schiessen
'Native Americans drive a pole into an alligator or crocodile's throat while in the background others shoot the animal with arrows or beat it with clubs. Includes a hut.The text describes the small hut built with slits and holes where a watchman waits for the alligator to forage for food. At that point others arrive and drive a small tree into the alligator's mouth. Then they turn it over and shoot and beat it on its soft underbelly until it dies. This work was published by Theodor de Bry from manuscript notes and drawings made by Jacques le Moyne de Morgues, an illustrator and explorer, who sailed with René de Laudonničre on the 1564 Huguenot expedition to Florida. Laudonničre set up Fort Caroline on the St. John's River in 1564, but the settlement was destroyed by the Spanish army under Pedro Menendez de Aviles. Theodor de Bry's America. Pt. 2. German.'
