Friendship - Because Mouse has heard that snakes are dangerous, he hides from his friend Snake. As he looks around nervously, he falls into a hole and hurts his foot, and none of his other friends can help him. Squirrel is afraid of the dark, the hole is too narrow for Rabbit to hop out of, and Hedgehog is too prickly to carry him. Only Snake can help him, and he devises a way to rescue his friend without frightening him. When he sees who saved him, Mouse is ashamed and tries to make amends.
