Description:Translation (Keita Kurabe) Now, I will tell a story about how humans got water. Once upon a time, humans destroyed a beehive to eat the honey. The bee got angry and it made the water dangle in the sky. The human elders apologized to the bee, saying "Please bring the water down from the sky. If you bring it down, we will give you a necklace as a reward." Then, the bee brought the water down. So, humans gave it a necklace. That's why to this day, there is a necklace around the bee's neck. When the bee tried to bring the water down from the sky, the water got stuck on the jungle vines. Because no one got the water down from the jungle grass, the humans asked the leech to do it. The leech brought the water down from the vine. So the humans gave it a reward as well. As a reward, they gave it a permission to suck human blood. When the leech brought the water down from the vine, this time the water went into the ground. So the humans asked the crab, "Bring the water to the earth for us." The crab brought the water to the ground. So the humans gave it claws to hold foods. That's why the crab has claws today. This is the end of the story.
