Tiger and Bear tied their tails and moved into the pit with full cautions because they were expecting to see a big enemy. The mouse deer was surprised again. He thought quickly and yelled, "Oh, that's the glutton tiger! His father owes us a white bear, now he will pay us with a black bear. Come on black, over here." Bear was so surprised.

He is not only called the God of Death but also the God of Wealth because of the precious metals hidden in the earth. The story goes that Cronus learned that one of his children would overthrow him. To prevent this, every time Rhea gave birth to a child he would swallow it. However, when their son Zeus (Jupiter) was born, Rhea had him hidden on the island of Crete. Then she presented Cronus with a stone, instead of the baby, wrapped in swaddling clothes. Cronus swallowed the stone, and Zeus grew to manhood. Zeus then forced his father to disgorge his brothers and sisters, and with their help overthrew Cronus and the other Titans. The greatest power in this new universe went to Zeus, who ruled over all gods and men from his palace high on mount Olympus. He was the God of justice and the God of oaths and hospitality. He married his sister Hera, and together they became the heads of a divine family made up of themselves and ten other gods and goddesses. In the beginning, according to the ancient Greeks, there was Chaos a great mass of darkness without shape or sound or meaning. Out of this grew Night and Erebus, the shadowy world under the earth, which is the home of death. The came a wonderful thing called Love, which produced Light and Day. Mother earth, called Gaea, appeared next with Heavens blue, star-studded dome on high.
