Stories telling a young audience how animals got their distinctive parts. The animals teach greedy Lizard a lesson when he pinches their food.

Why do zebras have stripes and leopards spots, rhinos horns and camels humps? Tinga Tinga Tales tells a modern, young audience what really happened.

There was a time when Lizard did not hide under rocks. He would scamper around Tinga Tinga pinching other animals' food and keeping it all for himself. Then one day the animals decided to give greedy Lizard a dose of his own medicine. When Lizard realised the error of his ways, he ran and hid under a rock, too ashamed to show his face in Tinga Tinga.
