Two Squirrels

Two young squirrels which went searching for food found a rather large mango, which was more than big enough for both of them to eat for the day. Since they couldn't move it to their place because of the sheer size, the two squirrels decided to eat as much of the mango and decided to hide the rest of the mango and hence dug a pit to hide the remaining mango, which they planned to eat the next day.

On returning the next day they found the mango missing from the place where they had hidden it. The first squirrel thought the mango had been eaten by some other animal in the forest, while the secound suspected the other squirrel of having eaten it without its knowledge, and thought the first squrrel was acting innocent.

The two squirrel then went searching for food when the secound squirrel suggested they split up and search for food as they would have much better chance of finding food. It also suggested that the one who finds food first should call out loud to the other, and both should share the find.

Both squirrels went in search of food in opposite directions. While the secound squirrel was the first to locate food, it however didn't share it with his friend as it suspected it had eaten the mango without its knowledge. Even as it was eating its find alone, it heard a call from the first squirrel indicating it had struck food. The secound squirrel went in the direction of the sound and found the first squirrel standing near what it had found - the mango that went missing.
It looked like some big animals must have walked through the place and hence the mango had went missing.

The secound squirrel felt bad and ashamed for suspecting his friend.
