As Teppinek and G-Fish made their way further inland, the hail and rain continued to pummel them from above. Soon they found shelter under a fefflemat tree. The large waxy leaves of the fefflemat protected them as they sat.
Some time passed and the storm began to slightly diminish in strength. Off in the distance from where they had come they could see a mass amongst the rainfall, unclear in definition. By this time the wax of the fefflemat's leaves naturally began to melt, creating the natural wax cocoon around the perimeter of the tree, creating a semi-transparent wall in which Teppinek and G-Fish could hide - I mean - "position strategically" behind.
Through the wax wall, Teppinek could make out the shape of a large low-lying creature. It seemed to lumber forward slowly, as if wounded, and seemed to drag an enormous tail behind it.
"What be dat?" inquired G-Fish.
"Shh," stated Teppinek, "I don't think I've seen a creature like it before, we must be quiet as to not startle it, it may be dangerous."
