One day in hot, sunny Africa there was a mummy and a daddy lion. The mummy lion was looking after an egg that she had found in her nest. The daddy lion was out with their other two cubs. He was going to go and show his cubs how to kill animals and get food. The daddy found a giraffe and he creeped up on it very slowly. Then the giraffe looked behind and saw the lion creeping up on it. The giraffe sprinted off and the lion chased it. The lion finally killed the giraffe and had some meat for the family. At home the egg was cracking, and the mummy lion was very pleased. When the daddy lion and his two cubs arrived home the egg had cracked open fully. They were horrified when they saw what was inside the egg. It was a baby tortoise with muck all over its face.
