North American - 2 fawns who were put in the sky. As Thunders. A bear killed a deer and would have killed her two young fawns but they ran off. When the bear followed them, a lizard gave them shelter and killed the bear by inducing it to swallow some red-hot stones. To save the fawns from further trouble with bears he sent them into the skies where they make the noise of thunder as they move about wearing the dry, crackly skin of the bear which the lizard gave them. Sometimes called Thunders.
