This is a multi-part manuscript. There is a Physiologus (Y version?) on folio 149v-158v. Not illustrated.

Rubric: Incipit de natura animalium de leone et animalium et enim Iacob bene dicens ait, catulus leonis iuda ... Incipit: Leo tres naturas habet, prima cum ambulat iter faciens in montibus et odor uenatoris uenit ei. Et de cauda sua cooperit uestigia sua quocumque ierit...

Twenty-one chapters: De leone, De autolape, De pirabolo, De serra, De caratrio, De pellicano, De noctecorace , De foenice, De upupo, De onagro, De serpente, De aquila, De formica, De uulpe, De arbore perennicae, De elifante, De agate, De lapide adamantino, De pardice, De ultore [vulture], De renocae [rhinoceros].

This copy has largely escaped notice in the literature on the Physiologus and its textual affiliations require further study.
