fond of boasting about his strength. And thought they were such close neighbors, the lion

One day she went to the lion and said, Good day, respected elder brother. Image it, I
met an animal over there who looked exactly like you, and he said to me, Is there anyone in

is no one, all of you have to submit to my rule and be my servants! Oh, he was an
intolerable braggart! He is so puffed up with pride that his eyes cant even light on anymore!
added the rabbit.
Oho, the lion said. Didnt you mention me to him?
Yes, indeed, the rabbit replied. But it would have been better if I hadnt. When I
described how strong you were, he just sneered and said dreadfully rude things. He even went
so far as to say that he wouldnt take you for his attendant!
The lion flew into a rage and roared, Where is he? Where is he?
Soon the rabbit took the lion a hill and, not going to near herself, pointed to a well
from a distance, and said,He is down there, in the well.
