A long time ago Crab was a very handsome man. He was tall. He had fine hair. He was also very kind. He had many friends. Crab’s friends knew that he was a kind man. So they asked him to do many things for them. The crab was able to do everything for them.

One day Scorpion said, “I want to take my house to a new place. Can you carry it for me?” The crab was able to carry the house for Scorpion. Another day, Snail said, “I am going to my farm. The river is full of water. I cannot cross it. Can you drink up the water for me?” The crab was able to drink up all the water and Snail crossed it to his farm.

A few days later, Lobster came to Crab. He aid. “My friend, I am going to marry. Please, give me a kente cloth to wear.” This was the least difficult thing for Crab to do. He gave Lobster the kente cloth; he also gave him a pair of sandals.

One day, Spider came. He said “Crab, I’m in trouble. I must go to the chief’s house I must think and speak well to the chief. Give me your head so that I can think and speak well.” Crab said, My good friend, I’m so sorry that you are in trouble. You can have my head so that you may think and speak well to the chief.’

Crab gave his head to Spider. Spider put Crab’s head on his head. Then he went to the chief’s house. The chief was very angry to see him. He said, “Spider, you are a bad man. You stole my gold. Because of this, we are going to cut off your head? Now, soldiers, cut off his head!”

The soldiers cut off Spider’s head at once. But it was Crab’s head. The spider went away and nobody saw him again. Crab waited and waited but Spider did not come back. The crab was always inside his hole. He could not go out. He could not see because he had no head. He could not hear and he could not eat.

At last, God was very sorry that Crab had no head. He told Crab, “I will help you to see and hear and eat. God gave Crab a shell to cover his body. He put two short sticks on the shell to be his eyes. He also gave him a mouth and teeth. God gave Crab legs. There were two big ones. They are his claws. He will use the claws to nip people who will trouble him. He told him to use the other legs as his hands and feet. Crab’s friends feared him now. So they did not come to him again.

Since that time, Crab has lived quite alone in his hole. Now we know why the Crab has no head and why it likes nipping people. We also know why it has no friends.
