The Leopard – Given

There was a competition between the hyena and the leopard to find out which of the two could see, hear and smell better. It ended in a draw, so both animals were celebrated as successful hunters. “But why,” the hyena asked the leopard afterwards, “can you comfortably take a siesta in the thicket during the hottest time of the day while I have to start searching for a new bite?”. ” I just have a special pantry,” says the leopard, “no one steals my prey high up in the branch fork of the tree…!”

Success must be maintained, not just achieved.
