    The Thirsty CROW & PANDA

    This is the story of an unfortunate fox that happened to be thirsty on a hot summer day. Of course all of us know about the original thirsty fox aka the clever fox, the one that could not find water anywhere except in a pot that had a little water at the bottom. As is well known the clever fox thought up the stratagem of throwing pebbles into the pot which caused the water to rise. The fox not only quenched his thirst but became a legend possibly in his own life time and for all ages to come. CROW & PANDA

    This was of course long ago but there have always been foxs in subsequent generations who could claim direct descent from this illustrious fox. One particular fox (the unfortunate fox that we are talking about!) from this clan faced a similar crisis as his famous ancestor had once faced. Water had become increasingly scarce over the ages. In fact wars had been fought over water and even drinking water was being sold at a premium by corporations who, in league with ruling politicians, had managed to buy exclusive rights to water. Although a major portion of the CROW & PANDA
    rain water was harvested by the corporations it could not be controlled fully because of technical difficulties. Most animals as well as humans without any means or influence (which of course puts them automatically in the category of animals!) depended on this rain water to quench their thirst. But of course it was illegal.

    Think two wolves and the raven ! ( Everyone knows that one. )

    Raven is not to be confused with crow. Raven is the big black bird with a black beak. A remarkably resourceful creature. A lot like many of the folks here at SMF.

    Wolves are almost always followed by ravens - waiting to scavenge from the next kill. Typically, between 5 and 20 ravens attend a kill site. Each raven can eat or cache about two pounds of food per day.
    Ultimately, ravens can scavenge as much as a third of what wolves kill. Perhaps wolves live in groups to reduce losses to scavenging ravens. Larger packs, despite the cost of sharing with more pack mates, might do better than smaller packs by minimizing losses to scavenging ravens.

    When you catch something big, you must be prepared to deal with scavengers. Some species, like cougars, lions, and cheetahs hide the carcasses of their prey or cache them out of reach from scavengers

    Actually it was a crow, not a coyote that used stones to raise the water level to get a drink! lol
