An ant was drinking at a river. Suddenly he slipped, and fell into the water.
A dove took pity on him. She threw a small branch into the river. The ant seized the bough, and swam back to the shore.
A few days later, the ant saw a hunter aiming a gun at the dove. He bit the man in the foot sharply.
The man missed the shot, and the dove's life was saved. The dove felt very grateful. She made good friends with the ant.
●鸽子非常感激蚂蚁。从此，他们成了好朋友。 寓意: 有些朋友也许平时看似微不足道，但却有可能在我们身处困境的时候提供巨大的帮助
