Awarua and Rereroa and Mana Island

The Taniwha Awarua and Albatross Rereroa were

friends, but Awarua wanted to be as good a flyer

 as Rereroa. Unfortunately his wings were very

small and he could not fly very high. So he asked

Rereroa to teach him. Rereroa told him to eat lots

of fish, and he would eventually be strong enough

to fly high. When he was ready, Rereroa told him

to go to the top of Te Maunga Whitireia to get

more height. Awarua launched himself but

still could not fly high enough, so that he

flew too close to Mana Island

and sliced the top off.
