Day after day, the crocodile would watch the monkey and think about what a tasty meal he would make.
“Don't worry about not being able to swim. I am a champion swimmer. You can ride safely on my back,” responded the crocodile.
“Monkey, I must tell you that as soon as we reach my island, I plan to eat you. I want to start with the tastiest part first -- your monkey-heart.”
It's back home, hidden in a tree. If you like, we can go back and I'll get it for you.”
The crocodile thought about it.
The hungry crocodile waited down on the ground. When he finally realized he'd been tricked, he swam away, with his empty stomach growling.
