Cypress's Pourquoi Story - Why the Fish has Scales.
Long, long ago before humans were born, one fish had been swimming in the sea. He was swimming along when he saw Tangaroa waiting by.
Tangaroa had beautiful shimmering skin like a rainbow. The fish said to Tangaroa "Can I have some of your skin please?" Tangaroa said "NO!"
The fish was sad...he just wanted Tangaroa's beautiful skin. He thought Tangaroa was a bad sea king. He was very silly.
Tangaroa felt sad for the fish, so he gave the fish some of his beautiful skin. Tangaroa was nervous. He said to the fish, "From now on, you will have skin called scales, and they're very special."
That is why the fish has scales.
