A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo

Just as the leopard is

> Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack

> Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the

The Crow and the Rabbit
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit saw the crow, and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?" The crow answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Moral of the Story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.
