A very selfish crocodile lived deep in the forest. He would not allow any of the other creatures to drink or bathe in his river. Everyday he sent the creatures of the forest away by threatening to eat them. So the other creatures had to go miles to drink elsewhere.
One day they were awakened by the roaring of an animal in pain. They went to investigate and found the crocodile was the animal in pain, lying on his back and crying real tears.
Would all the animals help the selfish crocodile or would they leave him to die in pain on his own?
