One day, the baby elephant Jingo was playing in the bush. Suddenly he heard a hissing sound. What he saw interested him. It was a long yellow snake raising its head staring at the elephant. “Don’t play here baby it is our area. If you continue to play here, I will bite you,” the snake warned the elephant baby.
The elephant never had a chance to meet a snake at a closer distance. So he asked the snake what will happen to me if you bite me. “You will be dead with my poison spreading all over you,” the snake explained. “Do you have any idea what will happen if I put my leg up on you?” saying that the elephant put his leg on the snake and the snake was dead.
