Hyena feels hungry even after eating small gazelles and grass snakes.
He longs for a day to get a meal that will fill his stomach. His friend,
Vulture, tells him that there is a big snake that lives along the riverbank
and that by eating him up, he will be in his stomach for a month.
Hyena starts his journey towards the river.
Will he find the King of the Snakes?
