The tortoise, still under the big beehive, noticed that everything was quiet. The beehive and honey had dried on his back.


Soon the tortoise realised that he no longer needed to crawl into a bush to hide. His hard new shell of honey could protect him.


The hyena was so tired and full of stings that he fainted before he got home.

When he woke up, he discovered that the stings had caused patches in his fur.

This is how the tortoise got his hard shell, and the hyena got his patches.

Hyena swore that he would never again steal.

But the hyena and the tortoise are no longer friends.
