Illustrated: Leo Senex et Vulpes

M0024 - M0025 - M0026
25. Leo Senex et Vulpes. Leo, defectus annis, recubabat in spelunca sua et aegrum simulabat. Visitatum regem complures venerunt bestiae, quas protinus devoravit. Accessit etiam vulpes, sed cauta ante speluncam procul stabat, salutans regem. “Cur non intras?” interrogavit leo. Vulpes respondit, “Quod video vestigia intrantium multa, at nulla exeuntium.”

M0025 = Perry142. Source: Gildersleeve 7. This is Perry 142. For an animal who foolishly approaches the lion not once but twice, see the story of the “heartless” donkey, #236.
