Title:Crab and Swordfish
Contributor (consultant):AQ

Description:In the story, the crab challenges the swordfish, who is known as the fastest swimmer in the sea, to a race. They agree to swim a race along the cost of Ambrym, from Maranata to Lalinda. After they have settled on a date, the crab goes to the various ports on the course of the race. At each port, he visits a friend of his and tells them about the race. He instructs them to act as if they were him, as soon as they see the swordfish go by. The ploy works, the swordfish thinks that each of the crabs he meets along the way are his opponent and tries to swim ever faster. In the end, it dies from exhaustion and its carcass is eaten by the crabs. The story is very reminiscent of the Grimm's tale of the hare and the hedgehog.
