The flamingos' stockings. A Uruguayan writer, Horacio Quiroga was born in Salto, Uruguay, in 1878 and died in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1937. The flamingos were so much in pain that they jumped off from one side to the other, but the snakes didn't leave them alone till they saw not one bit of the stockings had been left. Besides, since most of the snakes were poisonous, they thought the flamingos would die from the bites.

By Horacio Quiroga BIOGRAPHY. Once the snakes decided that they would give a costume ball; and to make the affair a truly brilliant one they sent invitations to the frogs, the toads, the alligators and the fish. The fish replied that since they had no legs they would not be able to do much dancing; whereupon, as a special courtesy to them, the ball was held on the shore of the Parana. The fish swam up to the very beach and sat looking on with their heads out of water. When anything pleased them they splashed with their tails. A Uruguayan writer, Horacio Quiroga.
