The Fox and The Turtle Moral Story

Once, there was a clever turtle that lived in a lake. One day, he came out of the water to walk around. A Cunning fox hiding behind the bushes looks at the turtle. The hungry fox was excited to see a turtle, hoping it would make a delicious lunch.

He jumps from the bushes and catches the turtle. The turtle is shocked and scared for its life. The fox attempted to bite the turtle, but its hard shell protected it. Seeing this, the turtle gets an idea and speaks to the fox.

“Mr. Fox, I see you are having trouble eating me”, said the turtle. If you soak me in water, I will become softer and easier for you to eat me. “Fox smiled and said, “Do you think I’m foolish enough to let you escape in the water?” But the turtle insisted, “No… I am trying to help you. I can’t escape if you hold me under the water with your paw.” The fox thinks for a while, and then he agrees.
