Babette is a jungle snake with some handicaps. First of all, she is very forgetful and in order to be reminded of an important thing, she has tied a knot in her tail. But unfortunately, she doesn’t remember that anymore either. Her life with the knot has become extremely tiresome. The charming butterfly Laurenzo helps Babette to get out of this predicament and makes a wonderful discovery.

The story is an enjoyable puppet show for young and old, by and with Claudia Schleich; Figure theater ”Schleichwege” – of course with a jungle ambience in the palm house.
