More Kley Illustrations

I just came across these beautiful Heinrich Kley drawings. I hadn't seen them before. The first one features a theme often applied by Kley, modern progress against nature.
I know lizards can grow their tail back...not so sure about crocodiles.

This one is titled Two lovely Beasts.

This is a great drawing, but I don't understand the Bavarian sounding caption. So I won't even try to translate? Anybody in Germany?

Either a sketchbook page or a study for a painting.
