"Aharoni, J."

Aharoni, J. (detail)
Die Säugtiere [sic] Palästinas.
Zs. Säugetierk. 5(6): 327-343. Dec. 22, 1930.
–Note on a supposed dugong captured at Tantura (between Haifa and Tel Aviv), having passed through the Suez Canal (330). However, as pointed out by Allen (1942), the fact that the animal was killed in a "shore cave" (Uferhöhle) suggests that it was actually a monk seal.
Aharoni, J. (detail)
Ayala vetachash [Deer and tachash].
Tarbiz 8 (1936-37): 319-339. 3 figs.
–In Hebrew with extensive quotations in other languages. According to Dr. J. Shoshani, the title is ambiguous (perhaps intentionally so) and can also be transliterated "Ela vetachash", meaning "Goat (or sheep) and tachash." The article discusses the identification of the animal referred to in the Bible (q.v.) as tachash, including past interpretations of it as a deer, goat, dugong, etc. Aharoni suggests that it may have been a narwhal (Monodon monoceros) or a deer (Cervus capreolus). See also Furman (1940?).
