I have reached the twenty-third chapter of my dinosaur book and the stakes are getting higher. One of the characters suffers a debilitating injury, which will make them more vulnerable to stalking predators. The other characters do something borderline suicidal to escape a pair of carnivorous dinosaurs. In addition to dinosaurs, the characters have some close encounters with other reverse engineered animals. One example involves a colossal snake that looks constantly angry. On the upside, the characters have gotten a lot closer to the finish line in their race for survival.
