  25. 25. The most obvious differences between different animalsare differences of size, but for some reason the zoologistshave paid singularly little attention to them. In a largetextbook of zoology before me I find no indication that theeagle is larger than the sparrow, or the hippopotamusbigger than the hare, though some grudging admissionsare made in the case of the mouse and the whale. But yet itis easy to show that a hare could not be as large as ahippopotamus, or a whale as small as a herring. For everytype of animal there is a most convenient size, and a largechange in size inevitably carries with it a change of form.
