Synopsis
Tells how catfish lost their scales because during creation the Devil was about to fry the catfish and had already scraped off the colorful red, blue and yellow scales when the Good Lord came along and stopped him. The Devil threw the catfish back in the water, but the scales never grew back, which is why catfish today have no scales.
