The fox and the lion

A very young Fox, who had never before seen a Lion, happened to meet one in the forest. 

A single look was enough to send the Fox off at top speed for the nearest hiding place.

The second time the Fox saw the Lion he stopped behind a tree to look at him a moment before slinking away. 

But the third time, the Fox went boldly up to the Lion and, without turning a hair, said, "Hello, there, old top."

Familiarity breeds contempt.
Acquaintance with evil blinds us to its dangers.
