They discussed everything around them including birds, animals, villagers and their problems.Their closeness grew day by day.The crocodile didn't just eat the fruit himself but also carried some fruits for his wife. But his wife didn’t like his friendship with the monkey. She expressed a wish to eat the monkey’s heart.To keep his wife’s words he invited his friend monkey to possess dinner with him. While taking the monkey to his home, he told him the truth about his wife’s wish.
