One day Zeus asked a favor of one of his neighbors, Boreas. Zeus asked boreas to take care of his animals while he went on vacation.
Go and Kill Him!!!
But Boreas was jealous of Zeus’s animals, so instead of caring for them, he let them all die.
No Legs For You!!!
when Zeus got back from his trip, he found all of his animals dead. He was sad for his animals and angry at Boreas. He ordered boreas to replace all the animals that died.
Instead of replacing the animals Boreas decides to try and kill Zeus with his army of lizards.
But The lizards are no match for Zeus and he curses them to have no legs. Boreas sees he cannot kill Zeus and runs away to hide in the jungle
The lizards followed Boreas and stayed with him forever in the jungle. Humans that ventured into the jungle found Boreas’ legless-lizards and renamed them snakes. If only Boreas had kept his promise to Zeus, he would be lying in his warm bed at his house.
