The Alligator's Fruit

Default Image

Two women went to an orchard to pick fruits. This orchard belonged to an alligator. While eating the fruits, one of them said, “Don’t throw any peel with your teeth marks on it as the alligator will see it and will come to know that we were here.” However, the other woman did not listen and did exactly that. The alligator saw the peel and recognised the woman.

The next day, he went to the village and asked the villagers to give her up to him. The villagers asked him to wait a while. They went inside and heated an iron rod over the flames. Coming out they asked the alligator to open his mouth and when he did, they pushed the burning rod in saying, “Here’s your fruit!”
