9 PL OK.

I don't recall the practice from previous volumes with regards to the reading of Latin text. Should it be read (help is available), skipped without any mention or skipped noting that some Latin text has not been read (as the reader did here)?
I have been instructed in other readings that I have done that I should say something on the order of "an untranslated sentence in Greek" especially when the archaic text was not easily reproduceable as modern Greek text for translation. In this particular case, I looked for a translation or pronunciation of the literal text and found none was available and that other literature references to the same quote in Latin were not consistent.

Please read the latin phrase/sentence. Please use this link as pronunciation guide.

I regret that I did not see your message with the pronunciation in it until after I submitted this. If you don't like it I will listen to her translation carefully and record it again.

It's fine. It doesn't have to be perfect. :D

Hello there.

I think I'd like to take on The Vertebrates Mammals, parts 1 - 5, sections 13 - 17, if I may.
