Once a fox met a hungry tiger. The tiger opened his mouth and was about to eat the fox.

But the fox said, “My dear sir, I’m the King of the forest! You cannot eat me!  Follow me, let’s walk together and I will show you.  If any animal sees me and does not fear me, then you may eat me.”

The tiger agreed, because he couldn’t believe a fox could be as powerful as himself. The tiger followed the fox to the forest. All the animals, when they saw the tiger in the distance, were all frightened and ran away.

Then the fox said: “How about it? I was walking in the front, and I scared all the animals away.”

The tiger had not noticed that the animals were actually afraid of himself. He was ashamed and said, “Yes, you are right. I’m very sorry. You are the King.”
