One legend said that the twelve animals quarreled one day about who was to head the cycle of years. The God decided that they hold a contest: whoever reached the opposite bank of the river would be the first, and the rest of the animals would receive their years according to their finish. All the twelve animals gathered at the river bank and jumped in the river. The rat jumped on the back of ox stealthily, the ox was in the first position, when the ox was about to reach the final line, the rat jumped off the ox's back, and won the race.

Most Chinese believe that the signs of Chinese Zodiac reveal the hidden secrets of a person's character.
