Original text on this topic:
[Female shown in Calcutta 1872 in transit to London] She has a peculiar habit of squirting out her urine to a great distance, s?nding it out behind her nearly twenty feet, a habit which may be the means by which the male is made aware of her presence in the dense recesses of her native forests, where smell is probably the sole guide by which the sexes become aware of each other's presence.
