Tales Of The World Devouring Serpent - Chapter 24
Fang Yun’s sneakily crawled through the grass, stopping from time to time to check the smell around and look up at the situation on the sky.
He has already drilled out from the lush bushes, plus there aren’t many trees or bushes to cover him, so he is clearly visible from the sky.
As the temperature continues to fall, he is about to face a particularly big problem, hibernation.
As a snake who doesn’t want to hibernate, Fang Yun feels that he doesn’t have much time left.
According to what he has learned, snakes become less active at 15°C or 59°F, mostly moving to warmer places. If the temperature drops below 10°C or 50°F, most snakes will choose to hibernate.
According to Fang Yun’s speculation, this time is likely to be the end of summer/ early autumn, in the near future the temperature is likely to drop sharply.
After all, this is in the mountains.
Therefore, before the temperature begins to plummet, he must be prepared accordingly.
The only way to avoid hibernation is through evolving.
Of course, it’s not that after Fang Yun evolves he will automatically gain resistance to cold, therefore not needing to hibernate, but after evolving, he will be awarded skill points, and with these skill points, he will upgrade the skill “Skin Resistance”.
This skill has three major effects, among which there is cold resistance which will be crucial for resisting cold, therefore not having to hibernate.
While Fang Yun was thinking about countermeasures, he didn’t stop crawling and searching for prey.
Now his accumulated bio-energy is only 320 point, still a long way from the 1000 point goal.
Suddenly, Fang Yun’s stopped crawling, looking across of him, there is a creature.
“Target locked, hedgehog, Specie: Mammal, Family: Erinaceinae, can provide twenty bio-energy point.”
The creature that appeared in front of Fang Yun is about twenty-five centimeters long, with a fat body and a short, narrow eye. also covered with spurs, it’s a hedgehog.
Just as Fang Yun was staring at the hedgehog, the hedgehog also discovered Fang Yun.
The hedgehog did not escape, but instead curled into a ball, with his spurs standing up, like sharp steel needles.
Seeing this scene, Fang Yun dispelled the idea of preying on this hedgehog and left.
If he were to bite onto the hedgehog this time, his mouth will turn into a sieve.
After leaving the hedgehog, Fang Yun continued to search around.
Originally, he hoped that he would meet with a relatively large animal such as the previous pheasant, but unfortunately, he didn’t have that luck.
But along the way, he met with a lot of frogs, most of these frogs are small ones of 3 to 4 centimeters, but adding them all, he obtained a total of 30 bio-energy point.
Making his bio-energy points reach a total of 350.
Suddenly, Fang Yun, who was crawling while flicking his tongue, stopped moving, looking over to his left side, a creature is eating the grass, from time to time raising its head and looking around vigilantly.
”Target locked, hare, Mammal, Lepus, can provide 100 bio-energy point.”
While Fang Yun was staring at the opposite hare, the mechanical sound of the system sounded in his mind.
”It turned out to be a hare.”
Fang Yun couldn’t help but get excited. Today’s luck is good. First, he encountered a pheasant, and now he met a hare.
This hare is about forty centimeters long and is especially fat, providing 100 bio-energy point.
If he caught this hare and devoured it, his bio-energy point will reach a total of 450.
However, hares can’t be so easily caught.
Hares are a particularly alert, extremely fast, and highly agile animal.
He remembers seeing a video about a hare being chased by two wolves in his past life.
As a result, after a long and grueling chase, just as the wolves seemed that they would catch the hare, the hare suddenly drifted, easily getting rid of the wolves chase.
Slowly crawling toward the hare, when Fang Yun was only about one meter away from it, the hare stopped eating the grass and then looked up.
After looking around vigilantly, just as Fang Yun was about to let out a sigh of relief, the hare gaze suddenly landed right on him.
When he saw this hare looking over to him, Fang Yun immediately knew he was discovered. Almost immediately, he launched a lightning-fast attack.
Fang Yun speed is extremely fast. In the blink of an eye, his head reached the other side, biting straight at the hare legs.
However, this hare slammed its legs on the ground, breaking away from Fang Yun’s mouth and running into the distance. After a few seconds, the hare completely disappeared from Fang Yun’s field of vision.
Looking at the direction in which the wild rabbit fled, Fang Yun’s didn’t feel any sort of annoyance, but instead slowly crawled into that direction.
While crawling, Fang Yun flicked his tongue from time to time, trying to distinguish the smells in the air.
After crawling about 400 to 500 meters, Fang Yun stopped moving, looking straight in front of him.
He saw that not far from his position, a hare is lying on the ground, twitching from time to time, it’s the previous hare that Fang Yun bit.
At the moment he bit the hare, he injected his venom into its bloodstream through his fangs, and with that intense running, the venom must have spread through its body.
As for the reason he was able to easily locate it, is because his venom reacting with the body of the hare released chemicals that he is able to trace back to the prey.
Fang Yun crawled to the side of the hare, watching it as it trashed before its death. Finally, after the hare stopped moving, just as he opened his mouth preparing to swallow it.
Suddenly, he heard a rustle in the bushes not far from his location.
On his left side, just getting out of the bushes, a snake slowly crawled towards this side. This snake is about the same length as Fang Yun, with a brown back and two rows of dark spots.
Mountain black snake
This is a black snake.
Most importantly, Fang Yun felt that this is the snake he met before, the one that he met when he just came to this area and was expanding his territory.
At that time, he was only one meter long, because this snake was longer than him, thus he wouldn’t be able to swallow it, thus he didn’t bother to try hunting it.
Two days ago, while he was patrolling his territory, he didn’t find any trace of this snake, who would have thought that he would meet it now.
And looking at the way this guy is behaving, does he want to snatch prey?
Thinking of this, Fang Yun’s Glared at the black snake, hissing at it, warning it that he isn’t one to be messed with.
While Fang Yun was glaring at the black snake, the system mechanical voice sounded in his mind.
“Target locked, Mountain black snake, reptile, squama, can provide 80 bio-energy point.”
