The Crocodile And The Monkey – Moral Story

Once upon a time in the middle of the forest, there was a river. In that river, there lived an old crocodile. He was not able to hunt anymore because he was weak. One day he was hungry. ‘Oh, it is very difficult to hunt on land now.’

Then he sat under a tree. A monkey saw the crocodile and asked ‘why are you so sad crocodile? Take some apples. They are very tasty.’

‘Thank you dear monkey. Can you please give me these apples every day?’

Okay, Crocodile!

The monkey gave the crocodile some apples and the crocodile ate the apples every day.

One day the crocodile thought to eat the monkey heart. So he thought of an idea. He asked the monkey ‘My friend want to meet you.’

The monkey was happy and said, ‘Yes, I will be very happy to meet him.’

The monkey sat on the crocodile’s back. But when they were in the centre of the river he told the monkey, “I want to eat your heart and now I will eat your heart.’

The monkey thought of a plan. He said to the crocodile. ‘But I forgot my heart on the tree.’

So the crocodile said, ‘ Go and take your heart and give it to me.’

The monkey said, ‘what a foolish crocodile you are? How you can take my heart from the body? I gave you so many sweet apples but now I will never give you those apples. You are not my friend.

The crocodile was very hungry and realised his mistake.

Moral of the story

One should think thoroughly before taking any action


Hope that from the above story you understood the importance of thinking thoroughly before taking any action. Many people take quick actions without thinking about the consequences and when they face problems, they regret their wrong actions. Do not fall into fake attractions and offers. Identify true friends and think before taking action on their offers and suggestions.
