It's my first time joining Folktale Week on Instagram. Looking for a story to illustrate I stumbled across the south amarican tale " Where the fruits come from". It's about a tapir who doesn't want to share and a magical fruit tree.

A massive tree full of fruit! Not just one type of fruit, but many different fruits. The mouse and the tapir gasped. Finally they found an adventure."

"Fascinated and curious they slowly approached the magical tree. But as the sun went down and the stars came out, something woke up between the massive roots..."
