The Smart Tortoise Who Fooled The Hunter Lion


lion hunting tortoise

One day a Tortoise was going back home after a day’s hard work.  He was very tired and want to reach home fast before night. Little he did know that he was being followed by a strong enemy. A lion saw the tortoise want to kill the poor animal and eat it. So with small steps, he was following the tortoise.

Tortoise sensed some danger. He became alert, couldn’t look back but aware of the danger. If he looks back, the lion will definitely attack. He paused and said to himself. I have to play smart to save myself from the Lion.  He has to do this immediately or else Lion will make him the lunch. He just paused and did that same trick generation after generation tortoises were doing when danger strikes them. He got himself wrapped inside the shell.  Lion got fooled. He roared out of frustration, but nothing could help him. He miserably tried to bring the tortoise out of the shell but failed. After sometime he left the scene and Tortoise went home happy.
