WildAid Presents The Great Race - A Story of the Zodiac

All the animals traveled far and wide for a Great Race to decide the 12 Signs of the Zodiac. The Jade Emperor lined them all up at the riverbed for the race to start. One animal, with the biggest heart, taught all the animals a lesson that day. One which led the Jade Emperor to make a great promise. But what could that be?
