4. How the Leopard Got His Spots

How the Leopard Got His Spots

This story features a leopard, who hunted giraffes and zebras on the plains with an Ethiopian man. Eventually, the giraffes and zebras hid in the forest, and they developed spots and stripes. When the leopard and man came to the forest, they could not find their prey because of the camouflage. Liking the idea of camouflage, the man turned his skin dark and gave the leopard spots.
