Episode 17: Why Crocodile Has a Bumpy Back
Why do zebras have stripes, leopards spots, rhinos horns and camels humps? Tinga Tinga Tales tells a modern, young audience what might have happened.
There was a time when Crocodile didn't have a bumpy back. His skin was smooth and he had to be careful of the hot Tinga Tinga sun. One day while napping, Crocodile got sunburnt and fell into a deep sleep. Lion warned the animals to be on their guard as the wildebeest had returned and could stampede at any moment. Crocodile missed the meeting, snoring under the hot sun.
