There was a time when MONKEY didn't swing in the trees.
He used to play on the ground and he loved to wind Nasty Crocodile up. When the big rains come to Tinga Tinga, MONKEY gets stranded up the Mango Tree! Needing Crocodile's help, he promises to give him his HEART in exchange for being safely returned to dry land... but tricks him by giving him a juicy, red mango instead! Crocodile is furious to find out he has been tricked! Snap! Snap! Snap! From that day on MONKEY swings from branch to branch keeping well clear of Crocodile's snapping jaws.
