In this traditional Swahili folktale, Guinea Fowl twice saves her friend Cow from Lion. In return, Cow sprinkles milk over the formerly all-black guinea fowl, disguising her from the lion and allowing her to easily hide in the grasses. Guinea Fowl is almost foolhardy in her brave and loving attempts at protecting her friend; Cow expresses her concern on a more intellectual level. Tales that value friendship are easy to promote, especially when the characters express their caring in both thought and deed.
