AROUND THE WORLD FOR ANIMALS SLOW-FOOTED AND WIDE-EYED, THE MOLUCCAN CUSCUS CANNOT LIVE IN CAPTIVITY Instead of draping her young about her, the mother, a marsupial, carries hers in a pouch in the Australian manner. Principally a leaf eater, and nocturnal in her habits, the cuscus ignores a banana to turn her goggle eyes on the spectators. THE BEST HANDLE TO A HORNBILL IS ITS BEAK Though weak in the bite, a hornbill can drive its gargantuan nib deep into an arm. Two Malays here help Malcolm Davis clip one wing of a valuable specimen to prevent its escape before reaching the National Zoological Park at Washington, D. C., halfway around the world.
