Upon the shore, Chubbs and John Henry both notice a peculiar looking bird, about the size of a turkey, at the end of the beach, near the jungle edge. As they step closer for a better look it attacks what appears to be the easiest target, Chubbs! The mouth of the bird opens to reveal rows of razor-sharp teeth!
It bites and claws at Chubbs, narrowly missing him. John Henry unlimbers his giant wrench and damn near smacks the head right off the bird! At that same moment, another bird flies from the forest at an attack. Cordelia and the Professor both fire their pistols and the bird drops dead in the sand. Once again, the Professor appears shocked he hit something he aimed at. John Henry, ever the resourceful guide, strings up the two ‘chickens’, as he calls them, on a tree branch. he figures they will be good eatin’ later.
At the end of the beach, at the base of a path leading through the jungle and up the mountain, they discover the sister lifeboat hidden under palm fronds. There is still some equipment tucked inside it. The lifeboat obviously came from the Natures Brew but looks like it has been here for several weeks. Hmmm.
