Smart Parakeet King

      Once upon a time in the jungle, there was a group of parakeet birds. It was led by a king. One day, their peaceful life was threatened by a hunter who planned to catch and sell them in the market. To do this, he put some glues around the parakeet’s nests to trap them. Some parakeets and the parakeet king were trapped on the glues that the hunter set up before. They had tried to release themselves from the trap, but their efforts resulted nothing. All of them cried for help, except their king. (Also read : The Legend of Situ Bagendit)

      The king then suggested wisely: “Be relax my friends! This glue is put by the hunter. He wants to catch us alive. If we die, he will not bring us with him. I suggest we all pretend to be dead when he comes to take us tomorrow. When the hunter releases us from this trap, he will check whether we still alive or not. If he thinks we are dead, he will leave us here. Please wait for my counting to one hundred, and then we will fly together.” read more
