Ass in a Lion’s Skin is a Jataka Story . Here the ass’s master puts the lion’s skin over his beast and turns it loose to feed in the grain fields during his travels. The village watchman is usually too terrified to do anything but finally one of them raises the villagers; when they chase the ass, it begins to bray and betrays its true identity.
