The lion took a fancy on this animal that he had not seen before, “Let us go and ask this extraordinary animal, where he comes from.”

The crow, who flies to far-off places was aware and replied, “Master, it is called a camel and this animal lives in villages. The flesh of this animal tastes good, let us kill it and eat it.”

But the lion disagreed, “He does not belong to the jungle, so he is our guest. I will not kill it. Please go and assure him that no harm will be done, and bring him to me”.
