Fable is a literary genre.

A fable is a succinct fictional story, in prose orverse,
that features animals, mythical creatures, plants, inanimate objects or forces of
nature which are anthropomorphized (given human qualities such as verbal
communication), and that illustrates or leads to an interpretation of
a moral lesson (a "moral"), which may at the end be added explicitly in a
pithy maxim.

or explaining some natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving
supernatural beings or events.

A legend (Latin, legenda, "things to be read") is a narrative of human actions that
are perceived both by teller and listeners to take place within human history and
to possess certain qualities that give the tale verisimilitude.

folk narratives such as legends (which generally involve belief in the veracity of
the events described)
and explicitly moral tales, including beast fables.
