[1.11] There are no fruit-bearing trees there, but only root crops, such as potatoes, turnips, carrots and the like. These plants are planted at the beginning of the day and ripen completely at the end of the day; at the beginning of the night twilight, the people come out of their caves and harvest these fruits, and immediately bring them to their underground dwellings, where they then feed through the night time, as well as through the whole of the following day.

[1.13] There are still in the rivers and lakes, which are quite common on the earth, a lot of aquatic animals, as well as some small species of birds, not unlike your sparrows, as well as whole armies of insects, and other l-, 2-, 3- and 4-footed terrestrial animals, whose purpose and more detailed description you will hear on another occasion; for now, enough has been said.
