Bland: Do not feed animals that have crooked claws.

· Uncis Unguibus ·
Quae uncis sunt unguibus ne nutrias.
Do not cherish animals that have crooked claws.

Bland's Commentary:
Do not feed, or take under your roof animals of ferocious and savage dispositions, that have sharp and crooked claws. Do not cherish a snake in your bosom, or enter into friendship with crafty and deceitful persons. Otez un vilain du gibet, il vous y mettra, save a trief from the gallows, and he will cut your throat. Cria el cuervo, y sacarte ha los ojos, breed up a crow and he will tear out your eyes.
