How jellyfish lost legs

The jellyfish once had legs

Four legs and one huge snow-white shell – a Japanese fairy tale claims that Medusa paid just such a price for boasting and stupidity. One day, the Dragon King sent Medusa on dry land to catch the Monkey. His Queen became fatally ill, and there was only one way to save her — the monkey liver.

At the behest of her master, Medusa went to Monkey Island, promised royal treats and sea treasures to one of them. The monkey believed her, and they swam … but Medusa never brought the “guest” to the royal table, because her tongue was boneless.

She told the Monkey about her insidious plan. And take that one and say that you left your liver hanging on a tree.

I had to go back! Monkey climbed higher on a tree and stayed there.

Medusa sailed to the King with nothing, and since then she has been deprived of the opportunity to land on land. And the Queen laughed so much, having learned how the Monkey had deceived her, that she immediately recovered.

Battleship dreamed of singing and singing!

A battleship in love with music had dreamed to sing all his life, but other animals and birds only laughed at him. Once, the Battleship met a wandering musician.

He promised to teach him music in just one day, but only at the end of the life of the Battleship. Inspired by the beast, he lived happily ever after, enjoyed singing birds and returned to the man when he was old. The musician played and sang for him until the Battleship fell asleep.

The musician made a musical instrument called charango from the shell of the Battleship and went across the Earth to play life-filled music in memory of his friend Battleship. This poetic tale is told to children in Brazil.

Pandas were white

The pandas living in the mountains of Tibet, many years ago were white as snow. But once the baby panda got rid of his parents.

Suddenly a leopard jumped out of the bushes and wanted to eat it. To help the kid rushed four brave shepherdess, who walked nearby. An enraged leopard killed them, and the baby panda escaped.

Having learned about what happened, the pandas smeared paws with ashes, as was customary in those parts, and went to the funeral of the shepherds – to ask for forgiveness. Everyone cried so loudly that the pandas began to close their ears and wipe their tears with their paws, hug and comfort each other. So they were smeared in black ash from head to foot, and they still do not wash it in memory of that day.

And four shepherds turned into four mountain peaks.

These and many more facts about how animals have become as we know them today, look in Angela McAllister’s book The Around the World with ethnic illustrations by Bulgarian artist H.
