The bleeding from the Orthacanthus was minor. Taking off one of his shoes he removed a white sock and placed it over the bleeding. The Terror Bird was now bearing down on him still racing a fast 50 mph. Only about one minute remained to escape his death at that rate. Running deeper into the woods, hoping that this would keep the Terror Bird at bay, he suddenly dropped into a camouflaged pit. After a hard landing he looked up to see the Terror Bird and a very large Usus deningeri. Both looked down on him with hungry eyes.
