Wisest Owl

This is meant to be a Fable
A wise owl was the smartest in the forest and had all the food it desired. A collage of nuts, berries, and small animals was stashed in his tree for later snacks. All the animals came to the owl for advice. One day, A squirrel came up to the owl with a question. “Owl, just what makes you think you’re the smartest in the land? How can one know truly unless they’ve seen the entire forest? You only answer to fools, so of course, you’ll seem smarter.” The owl was surprised by the question but nodded. “You’re right, squirrel. I’ll fulfil your request. I’ll go see the land and find out if I really am the smartest.” It stated. The squirrel quickly ran up the tree as soon as the owl left, laughing that he had tricked the wisest in the forest. But before he could celebrate with a feast, The owl swooped back and gobbled the squirrel whole.
