In an effort to save their youngster, owl's parents beg the Mighty Spirit of the Jungle to spare the most beautiful baby from an annual sacrifice. With intention to oblige, the Spirit eats the youngster that to him looks ugliest, with sad consequences. While tragic, this folktale forces alternative perspective-taking. It teaches children the value of objective description, and the potential pitfalls of vanity. Several versions exist, some titled differently, but this one is popular in Argentina.

Desesperados por salvar a su pichón, padre y madre lechuzas le ruegan al Espíritu Poderoso de la Selva que le perdone la vida al jovenzuelo más hermoso durante el sacrificio anual. Tratando de ***plir, el Espíritu se come el jovenzuelo que le parece más feo, con consecuencias tristes. Aunque trágica, esta leyenda fuerza a tomar perspectivas ajenas. Enseña el valor de la descripción objetiva y los riesgos de la vanidad. Existen varias versiones, algunas con diferente título, pero esta variante es popular en Argentina.
