Then one day, an elephant wanders into the lagoon,fills his trunk with water and playfully sprays a huge stream at Nathan. Nathan's first reaction is to get angry. But, with the penguin watching, Nathan decides to follow his own advice and looks the elephant right in the eye and tells him what he's doing is wrong. The elephant is apologetic. Then, when the hyena is about to splash the penguin, he copies Nathan and tells the hyena not to splash him again. Nathan's behavior demonstrates it's better to speak up to bullies than to strike back.
