What is the plot of the monkey and the turtle story?

For me, the plot or the main point of the story was that pride will always bring you down. We all know that the rabbit was faster than the turtle but he was so boastful. The turtle on the other hand was humble and consistent. Consistency and humility triumphed over pride and arrogance.

Summary of The Monkey and the Turtle?

The story of the monkey and the turtle starts out with the monkey and the turtle both being hungry, and the monkey suggests that they go and find food together. They talk along the way, and eventually see a banana tree. They monkey goes up in the tree where there is way too much for him to eat, but he doesn't throw any down for the turtle. He just eats and eats, and doesn't even leave the peel. The Turtle gets angry, and places shards of grass into the trunk of the tree to teach the monkey a lesson, and hides nearby. Eventually the monkey comes down and cuts himself, and is very angry and wants to kill the turtle. The monkey finds the turtle, and wants to either grind him to powder or burn him in the fire. He asks the turtle which he would prefer, and when the turtle realizes that the monkey won't be talked out of killing him, he tells the monkey that either way is fine with him, as long as he doesn't drown him in the river.

The monkey throws the turtle in the river, and the turtle laughs at him, telling the monkey that the water is his home. The monkey is angry and jumps in after him and drowns. And that is why monkeys and turtles don't get along.

What is the moral lesson in the story of the Monkey and the turtle?

I'd just like to suggest that questions of morality might not be the main point of the story. As it's told in the Pañcatantra, for example, it's about political craft. It's about being clever, not moral.

What is the Story about monkey and the turtle?

A monkey, looking very sad and dejected, was walking along the bank of the river one day when he met a turtle.

"How are you?" asked the turtle, noticing that he looked sad.

The monkey replied, "Oh, my friend, I am very hungry. The squash of Mr. Farmer were all taken by the other monkeys, and now I am about to die from want of food."

"Do not be discouraged," said the turtle; "take a bolo and follow me and we will steal some banana plants."

So they walked along together until they found some nice plants which they dug up, and then they looked for a place to set them. Finally the monkey climbed a tree and planted his in it, but as the turtle could not climb he dug a hole in the ground and set his there.

When their work was finished they went away, planning what they should do with their crop. The monkey said:

"When my tree bears fruit, I shall sell it and have a great deal of money."

And the turtle said: "When my tree bears fruit, I shall sell it and buy three varas of cloth to wear in place of this cracked shell."

A few weeks later they went back to the place to see their plants and found that that of the monkey was dead, for its roots had had no soil in the tree, but that of the turtle was tall and bearing fruit.

"I will climb to the top so that we can get the fruit," said the monkey. And he sprang up the tree, leaving the poor turtle on the ground alone.

"Please give me some to eat," called the turtle, but the monkey threw him only a green one and ate all the ripe ones himself.

When he had eaten all the good bananas, the monkey stretched his arms around the tree and went to sleep. The turtle, seeing this, was very angry and considered how he might punish the thief. Having decided on a scheme, he gathered some sharp bamboo which he stuck all around under the tree, and then he exclaimed:

"Crocodile is coming! Crocodile is coming!"

The monkey was so startled at the cry that he fell upon the sharp bamboo and was killed.

Then the turtle cut the dead monkey into pieces, put salt on it, and dried it in the sun. The next day, he went to the mountains and sold his meat to other monkeys who gladly gave him squash in return. As he was leaving them he called back:

"Lazy fellows, you are now eating your own body; you are now eating your own body."

Then the monkeys ran and caught him and carried him to their own home.

"Let us take a hatchet," said one old monkey, "and cut him into very small pieces."

But the turtle laughed and said: "That is just what I like, I have been struck with a hatchet many times. Do you not see the black scars on my shell?"

Then one of the other monkeys said: "Let us throw him into the water,"

At this the turtle cried and begged them to spare his life, but they paid no heed to his pleadings and threw him into the water. He sank to the bottom, but very soon came up with a lobster. The monkeys were greatly surprised at this and begged him to tell them how to catch lobsters.

"I tied one end of a string around my waist," said the turtle. "To the other end of the string I tied a stone so that I would sink."

The monkeys immediately tied strings around themselves as the turtle said, and when all was ready they plunged into the water never to come up again.

And to this day monkeys do not like to eat meat, because they remember the ancient story.
