Sang Kancil really wants to eat venison but he is small and unable to hunt. He asks help from Tiger, telling him to play dead. When the animals arrive, Kancil then gives a signal and Tiger pounces and kills Deer. The meat is then divided into two parts and smoked. While Kancil is sleeping, his fangs must not be touched, but Tiger refuses to listen. Then when Tiger falls asleep, Kancil eats up Tiger’s share of the venison and replaces it with the bark of the tree.
