The Camel and Jupiter

: Aesop's Fables

THE CAMEL, when he saw the Bull adorned with horns, envied him

and wished that he himself could obtain the same honors. He went

to Jupiter, and besought him to give him horns. Jupiter, vexed

at his request because he was not satisfied with his size and

strength of body, and desired yet more, not only refused to give

him horns, but even deprived him of a portion of his ears.
