The Octopus


The HawkThousands and thousands of years ago lived a prehistoric gigantic hawk.

Pentecost IslandIt was in the tiny nation of Vanuatu on an Island called Pentecost.


The giant hawk found a vantage point, high up in the mountain hinterland, in an area called Nagabulu, to observe all the other Islands.

Because of its powerful strength and amazing vision, the hawks' eyes could magnify any animal on the ground or any fish in the ocean.

All the animals feared the giant hawk because he had eaten all the living creatures in all the surrounding islands.

The giant hawk had full control, and no other animals could dare to challenge him.


 introducing lagalaga

Lagalaga was a very tiny little bird that was able to keep himself safe by living inside tall grass.

All the other animals were very impressed with Lagalaga and asked him to be their leader.

One day Lagalaga decided it was time to hold a meeting and invited all the animals, including all the fish in the ocean.

At the meeting Lagalaga thanked everyone for coming and said, I cannot do this alone.

Lagalaga then said
We should all come with a plan to kill the gigantic hawk because this huge bird is creating a great menace to the Island community, and all the Islands will soon be without any living creature.
We need to band together all the creatures in the ocean, the air, and the land, while we are still alive.

He asked everyone at the meeting: Who is willing to fight the monster hawk?

Not me! cried out the crocodile, I do not want to die an early death.

Not me! cried out the stingray, I do not want to die an early death.

Not me! cried out the shark, I do not want to die an early death.

Not me! cried out the pig, I do not want to die an early death.

Not me! cried out the lizard, I do not want to die an early death.

Not me! cried out the frog, I do not want to die an early death.

Not me! cried out the turtle, I do not want to die an early death.


All the other animals, and all the fish in the ocean said the same.
They all ran away - except the octopus, the barnacle, the black ant, the red ant, the rat, and the kingfisher.
