What a terrific genre, Teresa! (And the theme seems perfectly matched.) Never written something like this, so I'll have to take a few long nature walks, and see what tall tales animals tell each other in my part of the world.

Fun story, Ahsleyne. :)

Sounds intriguing, danny. One can imagine giraffes figuring in somebody's extraordinary adventures, and not just because of their height.

I've had a ponder about this while doing the school run and I'm changing the animals and locale, otherwise it'll be way too 'tropish'

I can see a story forming about catching the smallest fish ever. Honest, it was a right tiddler.

*looks for my translator*
Tiddler is a small fish. It is also used heavily in Black Country slang (where I live) for anything really small rather than the alternative of 'a right whopper'. However, on a quick search I've found it is also used as a term for a certain adult game. It's true that you learn something new every day.

Everywhere.
When I saw the theme, my mind went blank. When an idea came to me, I went with it, fearing I'd not get another one! Hope it pleases someone... my cat sure ain't happy about it!

This seems to be a well received challenge and will be very different to last month's dark places I would think.
Some super early entries, bar is gonna be pretty high!

What are you implying? Others with less callused skin would take offence. However, I'd like to point out the below quotes in support.

"Darlings, such a delightful combination. " Barbara Cartland
"Nay, as they dare. I will bite my thumb at any who doth protest." William Shakespeare
"Quoth the Raven 'More, more'.” Edgar Allan Poe
"Nobody's ever been more successful than me." Donald Trump
"Ug!" Zog, chief designer of the Lascaux Caves

Ah, I never said last month wasn't great, because it was and prompted some fantastic content. And many said how refreshingly different it was.
Variety is the spice of life, and that's certainly what we are getting.
