“How miserable our situation is!” cried the Poor Lizard. “No one notices us. We are small and have such a boring life. Look at other large animals. They are so royal and majestic!”

The unfortunate Lizard sighed, “I wish I had been born a deer. To be fast and have big, big horns! And live proudly in the royal forest.”

At that moment, a pack of dogs ran past, chasing a deer. The deer was tired, and hungry dogs attacked him.

The lizards watched in horror.

The wise Lizard said to his complaining friend: “You wanted to be in the place of this poor deer!”
“You must learn from what you have just seen. You are not beautifully colored and fast on your feet.
