The Leopard used to live on the sandy-coloured High Veldt. He too was sandy-coloured, and so was hard for prey animals like Giraffe and Zebra to see when he lay in wait for them. The Ethiopian lived there too and was similarly coloured. He, with his bow and arrows, used to hunt with the Leopard. Then the prey animals left the High Veldt to live in a forest and grew blotches, stripes and other forms of camouflage. Of the characters in the story, Rosalind Meyer wrote

And the Leopard scratched his head and said, "It ought to be 'sclusively a delicate greyish-fawn, and it ought to be Zebra; but it is covered all over with black and purple stripes. I can now," said the Leopard. But I couldn't all yesterday. How is it done?" "Let us up," said the Zebra, "and we will show yo. They let the Zebra and the Giraffe get up; and Zebra moved away to some little thorn-bushes where the sunlight fell all stripy, and Giraffe moved off to some tallish trees where the shadows fell all blotchy.

It's about a leopard named Sheldon, and how he got his spots. That's right, back when this story took place leopards didn't have spots. Now, you need to know that leopards love playing games. You see, back then, the leopard and the man were the same yellow-brown color of the desert sand. Of course, all the other animals, like the zebras and the giraffes, were also a sandy yellow-brown color, but not quite as sandy as Sheldon and Oscar.

Taken from his Just S. Best Beloved (or Spots) and Sambo are driven to despair because of their inability to hunt for food. What is interesting about this is the fact that that when both Socks and the Sambo try to find game on the lower grounds.
