    Bibles and bestiaries book sermons are much longer and discursive than Physiologus. The longevity of these scenes is demonstrated by fifteenth- and sisteenth-century Cretan copies which also share features like the half-human, half-snake viper with Bern His blue skin indicates his foreign origins; medieval Europeans would have referred to him as a Saracen. Such efforts are put forth with the sincere hope that such a critical translation may win this significant version of the "Physiologus" its due critical and literary attention. This meant that inaccuracies in depictions of animals—particularly Asian or African animals, such as the elephant—were passed down through the ages.

Over scholars have assembled thousands of comprehensive entries, lavishly supplemented by hundreds of illustrations and dozens of maps. The whole text is classified according to Isidore's groups. Illuminators vividly depicted the violent result.

A Phoenix detailabout MS Bodley incorporates part of Hugh's text within the bestiary and derives many of its bird illustrations from the Aviarium. In this copy there are illustrations for the first days of Creation, closely linked to the Ashmolean and Aberdeen Creation cycles.

This association of dark-colored cats and other animals with evil continues to this very day: a recent study found that people find light-colored dogs more friendly and adoptable than dark-colored ones. It is a single column, paragraph format Bible, with references on the outside of the page.

The texts from Isidore are not consistently illustrated. The text of Y is very close to its Greek source but fell from use and had little influence on the other versions. In a thirteenth-century English bestiary, for example, a medieval artist painted a crocodile being killed by a hydrusa mythical creature said to have come from the Nile River in Africa; the hydrus is painted a vivid blue with red wings.

A calf or sheep was slaughtered and its hide removed, scraped of flesh and fur, then stretched over a frame to be turned into parchment. Faraway lands are full of fantastic creatures. The author offers considerable insight into the relationship of text and illustration.
