Contributor:Michael Karovin
Coverage:Papua New Guinea
Description:This story explains the origin of the coconut. Two brothers used to go fishing together. One day they went and caught a lot of fish. A big shark came and banged against the canoe and asked for fish. They gave him fish, but he kept asking for more. When all the fish were gone, one brother started cutting pieces off the other and throwing them to the shark. When he reached the shore, only his brother's head remained. He planted the head and it grew into a coconut tree. Today you can see that a coconut looks like it has eyes, a nose and a mouth.
