The other story Casti told us was about Sulcorna. It appears that he used to spend time with Moja in the early days, when Moja still had only the tarpaulin stretched out under a tree. It seems that they had some goats, and that one day they found one quite mangled up by a leopard. Another time, Mora and Casti went out hunting, Mora skirting a thicket on one side, and Casti on the other. Casti reports having heard steps behind him, but he did not turn around, hoping it was a "stupido animaletto." It turned out to be a tigress. Mora said it had stopped following Casti, probably because his path had taken him away from the place where the tigress had her cubs.... And thankfully the tigress was not hungry. Otherwise, something like
There was a lady of Niger,But then Casti and tigress don't rhyme.

They returned from the ride,
with the lady inside,
And a smile on the face of the tiger.
