A shepherd boy saves the Snake King’s son from the death by fire and in his thankfulness the Snake King presents him. He has two choices: either he understands the speech of the animals or he gets a bag full of money. The boy is thinking it over. Both of the options would be good but he will not have the possibility to understand the speech of the animals another time. So he chooses this option.
