Elephant and Warthog were Cousins

Long, long ago somewhere in Africa… When the earth and all the people and animals were new… Elephant, you may not know, was related to Warthog since forever. Although they were created very differently, they are cousins. It may surprise you to know that they fed on the same food. Well almost the same food, namely roots, bark and leaves.

Of course, Warthog eats scrub, shrub and grass leaves and Elephant eats grass, bark, roots and tree leaves. Elephant drinks lots of water and makes his food into tree leaf tea. I am sure you must have heard of tea? To get on with the story, pour a cup of tea and join Elephant and Warthog as they have a life changing experience.


The Hunter and the Monitor

Long, long ago somewhere in Africa… When the earth and all the people and animals were new… A Shangaan man took his dogs one day and went hunting for some Guinea fowl. Along the way he came upon a leguaan by the broad and dusty track at the river’s edge. The leguaan said to him, “Master, help me across this desert waste.” For this great river bed was just as impassable as an endless desert for one so short as the leguaan.

The hunter at once refused and was going on, but the creature implored him again: “Do help me across this desert waste, and I will help you across yours.” With this, the man turned back, picked it up, and carried it across with no small effort… For the leguaan is a substantial beast.


When Laying Traps, Mind Your Own

Long, long ago, somewhere in Africa, when all the people and animals were new… A hyena, came across a steenbuck one morning, who having just woken up, was standing all forlorn, looking into the distance wondering where mama steenbuck had gone to.

The hyena, not wanting to appear gross and vulgar in his approach but rather determined to appear amiable, sidled up to the steenbuck and as cunningly and politely as he could muster, said: “Good morning.”

To which steenbuck quietly answered, a plaintive, “Morning.”
