M0633 - M0634 - M0635
634. Testudo et Lacerta. Lacerta testudini aiebat, “Me miseret tui, quae, quocumque vadere libeat, ipsa cogaris domum tuam tecum ferre.” Illa inquit, “Quod utile, non grave est onus.”

M0634 (not in Perry). Source: Desbillons 1.4 (adapted into prose). This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; it appears original to Desbillons, as he cites no source. For the story of how the turtle got her shell, see #633. Compare also the snail and her shell, #641.
