Tane’s Weta

In the beginning somebody called Tane created beautiful forests with lots of animals.

One day Tane didn’t see the weta and they got squished.  On Tane’s foot there was the father of the Weta that got squished.  Tane felt sorry for the father weta.  So Tane gave them strong hard armour.

The first weta was called Giant Weta.  The second was the Cave Weta.  The third was the Ground Weta.  The fourth weta was quite an ugly one, the Tusked Weta.  And the last is my favourite the Tree Weta.
