The Frog — Cycle 46+


The Frog — Cycle 46+


A snake chases a frog into a log. The frog escapes out of a little hole, but the snake gets stuck in it.  The frog has to make a choice whether to help the snake or run away. He sees how sad the snake is, so he decides to help it break free.  Once free, the snake gives the frog a hug and promises to stop chasing him.
