There seem to be [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] 5 [[/preprinted]] at least three or four species. The largest ones are more conspicuously marked and frequently raise the fore part of the body and extrude a large flat pouch from the underside of the head and neck. It appears to be thin pinkish translucent skin stretched over a stiff but curved and flexible support. This pouch may be about one inch vertically by one and one-quarter horizontally and projects forward under the front of the head. It appears to roll out from the back to front. It almost appears to be for display as they come out into a conspicuous position and then perform six or eight times in succession.
