Rabbit on the Moon

Once upon a time there was a young rabbit who wished to ride the moon. Only the crane was willing to take him. The trip stretched the crane’s legs as the heavy rabbit held them tightly, leaving them elongated as crane's legs are now. When they reached the moon, the rabbit touched the crane's head with a bleeding paw, leaving the red mark cranes wear to this day. According to the legend, the rabbit still rides the moon to this day.
