hardly recognizable, so thickly had the jungle grown back Clearly, no one had used this road for many years, and the jungle was always ready to return.Behind him, Diego grunted, swore softly Levine turned and saw Diego lifting his foot gingerly he had stepped to mid ankle in a pile of green animal droppings Levine went back.Diego scraped his boot clean on the stem of a fern The droppings appeared to be composed of pale flecks of hay, mixed with green The material was light and crumbly dried, old There was no smell.Levine searched the ground carefully, until he found the remainder of the original spoor The droppings were well formed, twelve centimeters in diameter Definitely left behind by some large herbivore.Diego was silent, but his eyes were wide.Levine shook his head, continued on As long as they saw signs of herbivora, he wasn t going to worry At least, not too much Even so, his fingers touched the butt of his pistol, as if for reassurance.They came to a stream, muddy banks on both sides Here Levine paused He saw clear three toed footprints in the mud, some of them quite large The palm of his own hand, fingers spread wide, fitted easily inside one of the prints, with room to spare.When he looked up, Diego was crossing himself again He held the rifle in his other hand.They waited at the stream, listening to the gentle gurgle of the water Something shiny glinted in the stream, catching his eye He bent over, and plucked it out It was a piece of glass tubing, roughly the size of a pencil One end was broken off There were graduated markings along the side He realized it was a pipette, of the kind used in laboratories everywhere in the world Levine held it up to the light, turning it in his fingers It was odd, he thought A pipette like this implied Levine turned, and caught a glimpse of movement out of the corner of his eye Something small and brown, scurrying across the mud of the riverbank Something about the size of a rat.Diego grunted in surprise Then it was gone, disappearing in foliage.Levine moved forward and crouched in the mud by the stream He peered at the footprints left by the tiny animal The footprints were three toed, like the tracks of a bird He saw three toed tracks, including some bigger ones, which were several inches across.Levine had seen such prints before, in trackways such as the Purgatoire River in Colorado, where the ancient shoreline was now fossilized, the dinosaur tracks frozen in stone But these prints were in fresh mud And they had been made by living animals.Sitting on his haunches, Levine heard a soft squeak coming from somewhere to his right Looking over, he saw the ferns moving slightly He stayed very still, waiting.After a moment, a small animal peeked out from among the fronds It appeared to be the size of a mouse it had smooth, hairless skin and large eyes mounted high on its tiny head It was greenish brown in color, and it made a continuous, irritable squeaking sound at Levine, as if to drive him away Levine stayed motionless, hardly daring to breathe.He recognized this creature, of course It was a mussaurus, a tiny prosauropod from the Late Triassic Skeletal remains were found only in South America It was one of the smallest dinosaurs known A dinosaur, he thought.Even though he had expected to see them on this island, it was still startling to be confronted by a living, breathing member of the Dinosauria Especially one so small He could not take his eyes off it He was entranced After all these years, after all the dusty skeletons an actual living dinosaur The little mussaur ventured farther out from the protection of the fronds Now Levine could see that it was longer than he had thought at first It was actually about ten centimeters long, with a surprisingly thick tail All told, it looked very much like a lizard It sat upright, squatting on its hind legs on the frond He saw the rib cage moving as the animal breathed It waved its tiny forearms in the air at Levine, and squeaked repeatedly.Slowly, very slowly, Levine extended his hand.The creature squeaked again, but did not run If anything it seemed curious, cocking its head the way very small animals do, as Levine s hand came closer.Finally Levine s fingers touched the tip of the frond The mussaur stood on its hind legs, balancing with its outstretched tail Showing no sign of fear, it stepped lightly onto Levine s hand, and stood in the creases of his palm He hardly felt the weight, it was so light The mussaur walked around, sniffed Levine s fingers Levine smiled, charmed.Then, suddenly, the little creature hissed in annoyance, and jumped off his hand, disappearing into the palms Levine blinked, unable to understand why.Then he smelled a foul odor, and heard a heavy rustling in the bushes on the other side There was a soft grunting sound More rustling For a brief moment, Levine remembered that carnivores in the wild hunted near streambeds, attacking animals when they were vulnerable, bending over to drink But the recognition came too late he heard a terrifying high pitched cry, and when he turned he saw that Diego was screaming as his body was hauled away, into the bushes Diego struggled the bushes shook fiercely Levine caught a glimpse of a single large foot, its middle toe bearing a short curving claw Then the foot pulled back The bushes continued to shake.Suddenly, the forest erupted in frightening animal roars all around him He glimpsed a large animal charging him Richard Levine turned and fled, feeling the adrenaline surge of pure panic, not knowing where to go, knowing only that it was hopeless He felt a heavy weight suddenly tear at his backpack, forcing him to his knees in the mud, and he realized in that moment that despite all his planning, despite all his clever deductions, things had gone terribly wrong, and he was about to die From the Hardcover edition.HARROWING THRILLS FAST PACED AND ENGAGING PeopleIt is now six
