The Legend of the Zodiac Rabbit
Do you know the fable of the Tortoise and the Hare? It sounds like the tale of the Rabbit.
Legends differ, but most tell of a great race held by the Jade Emporer of China. He invited the animals to take part and decided the order of the Chinese zodiac based on the results. The Rabbit came in fourth.
The Rabbit got to the finish line but decided to nap and wait for the rest to catch up. The overconfident Rabbit slept as three other animals crossed the finish line.
