English Version
The Tiger and The Grasshopper
One day, while walking around the mountain, the tiger was startled by a loud noise. 
Scared, he looked around to find where the noise had come from and discovered a grasshopper resting underneath a leaf.
The tiger, confident of his size and power, challenged the little insect to a fight and he calmly agreed.
Each animal called its friends. The tiger had the lion, the coyote, the razorback and the wolf by his side; while the grasshopper called the wasps, mosquitos and bumblebees to join him.
The tiger and its friends were overconfident about winning; however, they ran away as fast as their enemies stung them all over.
That’s how those big animals were defeated by the grasshopper and its small friends.
That’s how Tojolabales tell it.
