The Fox and The Turtle
The Fox and The Turtle :
For want of a better meal, a starving fox once captured a turtle, but it could not manage to breakthrough the solid shell in order to eat it.
'You should try by putting me in the water for a while to soften me up,' suggested the shrewd turtle.
This sounded an excellent advice to the fox. He carried his prey to the stream and immersed it in the currents. The turtle, who was a superb swimmer, slid out of the fox's paws and re-emerged in the mid-stream laughing, 'There are animals who are even more cunning you. Now you'll stay hungry!'
