I'm comparing recent translations of Aelian's Varia Historia 9.31, and I am unable to lay hands on the translation done by James G. DeVoto, Claudius Aelianus: Varia Historia
published by Ares in 1995. If anyone has access to it, would you mind posting it? It is only a couple of lines.
The Greek text can be accessed at https://tesserae.caset.buffalo.edu/texts/grc/aelian.varia_historia.tess
and also on the Perseus Tufts site.
