Rearranging word riddle

  1. Sep 15, 2003 #1
    Can you make another sentence with a similar, though opposite, meaning of the one below by rearranging the words?

    When large humans scare tiny animals, they are such beasts that they let loose a roar.

    (simple but it works) When tiny animals scare large humans, they are such beasts that they let loose a roar.


    (changed a bit more)
    When beasts let loose a roar, they are such large animals that they scare tiny humans.

    or, similarly....

    When large animals let loose a roar, they are such beasts that they scare tiny humans.
