There are taken in these Islands several sorts of tortoifes
for there are Land-Tortoifes, Sea-Tortoifes, and Fresh-
water-Tortoises, which are of different figures : The Caribbians
call them all by the name of Catallou; but when they speak of
the Land-Tortoises, they adde the word Nonum, which in their
Language signifies the Earth, or that of Tona, that is to say
of the River or Water.
