A long time ago Buru and Wombady were best friends they fished and hunted and were never far from each other.

They lived on the plains not far from each other.

Wombady had a good camp he lived in a gunya that was made from bark and leaves it was cosy, warm and waterproof.

Buru preferred to live in the open under the stars, sometimes Wombady would leave his gunya and sleep with Wombady.

One day a great rain came it poured with rain soaking the land and animals, Wombady went to his gunya and lit a fire where he was warm and dry he was enjoying listening to the rain.

The rain fell heavily on Buru’s fire and it went out, he became very wet, cold and miserable and hoped that Wombady would invite him in to his gunya, he waited and waited but he didn’t call out.

Buru became very wet so he went to Wombady and asked to share the Gunya, Wombady said there is no room as I need to stretch out,  Buru was angry  so he searched for a big rock and found one in the mud, he hit Wombady on the forehead Wombady screamed he couldn’t believe Buru had hit him, his forehead was bruised and flat.

Wombady was very angry so when Buru turned his back he through his spear at him as hard as he could the spear landed at the base of his tail bone, he leapt high in the air with fright and pain, the spear was stuck he tried with all his might and couldn’t remove the spear.

Wombady said the spear will forever stay there and be your tail to balance on when you hop and you will never sleep in a Gunya again.

It was decided that Wombady would sleep in a hole in the ground and would forever have a flat fore head and Buru would sleep on the plains under the stars with no roof.
