The wolf shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the kid,
and the calf and the lion and the fatling together . . .
[T]he animals, because alike mortal and endowed with similar physical
functions and organs, are considered [by Zunis] more nearly related to man than
are the gods; more nearly related to the gods than is man, because more
mysterious, and characterized by specific instincts and powers which man does
not of himself possess.
