Tiddalik woke up one day with a great thirst because it was very hot. Tiddalik went done to the billabongs and streams and he drank all the water!
The animals saw that there was no water left anywhere and they wondered why. All the other animals had a meeting in the forest about the situation.
At the meeting the animals discussed what happened to the water. Tiddalik was extremely fat and the animals assumed he drank all the water. They all thought of ways to make Tiddalik spit out the water, but none of the ideas would work.
all the animals lived happily ever after!
The wise owl thought if the aniamls could make him laugh all the water would burst out and the billabongs would be refilled. The animals tried to make him laugh but it didn't work, until the talented eel started twisting and turning into different shapes.
Tiddalik showed a small smile and the animals encouraged him to continue trying to make Tiddalik laugh, so he did. Tiddalik finally let out a humongous laugh.
All the water bursted out and the billabongs and streams refilled. The water caused a great flood and all the animals would now survive. They were all so happy because they were no longer thirsty!
