How did Turtle get his shell? After being tied up by the king for stealing fruit, Turtle convinced three young birds to set him free and bring him a gourd for a “costume.” When the king's guards attacked Turtle, the gourd protected him from the jabs of their beaks. He decided to keep the gourd and that's how he got his shell. As for Tiger, Cat taught him how to watch, crouch, and spring. Fortunately, Cat was too tired to teach Tiger how to climb trees, because Tiger decided he was hungry and tried to catch Cat. So Cat ran up a tree, where Tiger couldn't get him. From then on, Cat refused to teach Tiger how to climb trees.
