Hi, I am looking for information about the personification of animals in
african culture. A story or folktale that describes animals with human
characteristics or qualities. Does this information even exist?

In other cultures like the Chinese and Native Anerican, animals are
believed to hold certain powers. I hope this is making sense. I have
tried an internet search, but no luck.
