One day the rabbit came to the lion and said, "Good morning, Sir! Just now I saw an animal over there who looked just like you. He said that he was the king of all the animals in this forest. He told all of us to obey him and be his servants."
"Didn't you tell him about me?" roared the lion.
"Yes, I did," said the rabbit. "I told him how strong you were, but he said that no animal was so strong as he was."

The rabbit took the lion to a deep well and said, "He is down over there in the well."
The lion hastened to the well and looked angrily at the water. "Yes, there he is," He roared. He flew down at his enemy into the well and was drowned. Poor lion !
(What he said his enemy, was actually his reflection in the water.)
