The woman is described as bad-tempered, quarrelsome, sharp-tongued, gossipy, and peevish.
A woman wanders through the wilderness with her children in tow. A fearsome leopard waits above them, hoping to carry the children away. Thinking quickly, the woman offers the leopard one of her children and half of her own body, stating that a lion has staked claim to the other half. Fearing rivalry with the lion, the leopard quickly flees.
