The various texts are organized into groups, with a comparison of features and lists of beasts described. The article includes a critical edition of part of the so-called Dicta Chrysostomi (Dicta Iohannis Chrysostomi de naturis bestiarum) version of the Physiologus (lion, panther, unicorn, hydrus and crocodile, siren and onocentaur, phoenix). There is also a discussion of the Physiologus of Theobaldus, with a list of manuscripts containing the text.
