Frank Buckland wanted to save—and eat—as many animals as possible. One of the features of The Acclimatisation Society was their Dinners. In London most of the nurses were illiterate; one who claimed to read was tested with a label reading "This lotion to be applied externally only". Bompas 1 quotes Frank as saying: On January 21,I had the good fortune to be invited to a dinner, which will, I trust, hereafter form the date of an epoch in natural history; I mean the now celebrated eland dinner, when, for the first time, the freshly killed haunch of this African antelope was placed on the table of the London tavern.

He walked two miles every day, ate a healthy diet, lifted weights and worked so hard to maintain a vigorous life. In the years after his death, certain friends publicly recalled times when Buckland performed acts of spectacular kindness, providing meals, clothing, and train tickets for strangers in distress, and constantly buying gifts and performing unsolicited favors for friends and acquaintances.

And, in a way, those charges seem even more pertinent now than they did back in the s. But unlike the panther, Buckland was well worth digging up again. As a Life of Frank Buckland book rule, the weirder the subject, the more likely Buckland was to have something to say about it: the fighting behavior of newts, the cannibalistic propensities of rats, the best method for killing a boa constrictor, gigantism, walking fish, flea circuses, conjoined twins he was a good friend of Chang and Eng Bunker, the original Siamese twinsthe uses of human hair as manure, and pagan burial rites.
