"Ichneumon: An animal resembling a weasel, and well worthy of being defended by priest and prince in Egypt, as it feeds on serpents, mice, and other vermin, and is especially fond of crocodiles' eggs, which it scratches out of the sand."
"Etymology: Ichneumon \Ich*neu"mon\, noun. [Latin from the Greek, literally, the tracker; so called because it hunts out the eggs of the crocodile, from to track or hunt after, from track, footstep.]. "
