THE BEASTS(חיה ), THE BIRDS(ציפור) AND THE BAT( עטלף )
Once upon a time the birds and the beasts were enemies, and war began between them. The bat was half bird, half beast, and he made up his mind not to take part in the fighting and the way to save his life. But secretly he decided to join the winners as soon as it became clear which side was going to win.
On the day of the battle he flew up in the air watching the birds attacking the beasts. It seemed that the birds were going to win, and so the bat immediately to the side of the birds, asking to be allowed to join them.
"I am a bird as you see," he said, "and in this hour of danger my place is with you to help in the fighting." However, he did not take part in the fighting, but went on watching the battle.
Very soon it became clear that the beasts were going to win, and flew down to join them.
"My body is very much like the body of the mouse, and I am in fact a beast. Would you mind my joining you?"
The beasts agreed to take him, and he promised to be true to them. The battle went on for some time. The birds fought bravely and at last they won a victory, and peace was declared.
From that day on the bat hides himself in the caves because he is neither with the birds nor with the beasts and is afraid of both. That is why he appears only at night when all the birds and beasts are asleep.
