144. Asked further about their world they said it contained meadows, flower-gardens and woods full of fruit-bearing trees, as well as lakes with fish in them. There are blue-coloured birds with golden feathers, and animals both large and small. Among the smaller ones they mentioned some which have a raised back like camels in our world. However, they did not eat their flesh, but only that of fish, together with fruit from the trees and vegetables from the earth. They went on to say that they did not build houses to live in, but lived in woodland, where they made roofs among the leaves to shelter from rain and the heat of the sun.
