Blue tongue lizard would not tell where he found precious water and none of the animals could find it, so they asked little rat Gula who followed Blue tongue and hid. Gula found the water bubbling from a spring, so everyone jumped in and began to splash and the kingfisher was so glad, he swam to and fro, and with his beak made creeks and gullies in front of the running water all the way down to the sea and that is how the small creeks and gullies were made. The moral of this story: He who is thought of least and of no account will be the greatest.
