: So I am, but people call me the Ship of the
Desert.  I can walk across the desert even on a hot afternoon.
The sand burns but it doesn’t bother me.
I can’t believe it.
Can you walk across a desert?
: No, I can’t, but I can run in the forest.
: Every animal can do that. I alone can
run on sand. I can run on sand at 25 kilometres an hour.
: How can you do that?

Look at my feet. They are thick and padded. The hot

My feet are padded too. Thorns don’t prick them and I
can run 80 kilometres an hour.
That is true. You can run 80 kilometres an hour in the
forest but can you run even a mile on the hot sand?
May be not but....
: And you can't live without water for a
week, can you?
No, I can’t. I need water everyday. But don’t tell me you
can do without water?
Yes, I can. There are no rivers or lakes in a desert. But
that does not bother me. I can drink 200 bottles of water at a
time.

Really! You must have a big stomach!
: Yes, I have a big stomach. I can store water
for a week. I can store food for two weeks even.
: Do you store food in your
stomach?
No, I don’t. I store it in my hump. I eat a lot of food at
one time. Then I don’t need to eat for a fortnight.
That’s interesting. But what do you eat?
I eat leaves, but there are no trees in a desert.
What do you eat there?
There are thorny bushes in the desert. I eat the
thorns. The thorns don’t prick my thick tongue.
How funny!
Mr King of the Forest, please come with me to the
desert.
No, I’d better not. I can’t walk on burning sand, I can’t
store food and water and I can’t eat thorns. Good bye and
good luck, Mr Ship of the Desert.
Ship of the Desert, miles, King of the Forest, sand, thorns
