Illustrating the barely known

The CS Monitor reviews a compilation of old illustrations of animalsand seamonsters, with a general theme of paleontology. The site, Strange Science, also explains a bit what was guiding the artists' interpretations.

Apparently Renaissance scientists believed stingrays love "music, dance, and witty remarks." I'll have to go see if I can be witty.
