Tales Of The World Devouring Serpent - Chapter 35
Looking at the five Jackals around him, Fang Yun slowly coiled his body.
Although he is surrounded at the moment, he did not panic, after all, he can already be considered a high-level predator, already having his means of attack.
Although the five Jackals are powerful, they didn’t reach the unbeatable level.
He lifted his head and hissed, warning them that he is dangerous, not a simple prey, at the same time he carefully observed them, trying to figure out their plan.
The two Jackals in front of Fang Yun slowly approached him, while the other three are seemingly staying still, not moving.
If other animals encounter this situation, they are sure to retreat to the rear and look for a chance to escape, but Fang Yun is not falling for their tricks.
Because he saw it very clearly, the five jackals are surrounding him in a pentagon-like shape, with the two in front slowly approaching him,
That is to say, if he chooses to breakthrough from the rear, the three seemingly still Jackals can block him from leaving for a few seconds, which is enough for the two in front to reach him, resulting in a siege of five. While this may seem like a very smart plan for animals, for Fang Yun, a snake with a human soul, it’s a pretty obvious one.
After guessing the “insidious” plans of these five guys, Fang Yun is naturally not so stupid to fall for it. His eyes darted around, looking for other ways to break from.
He found that the distance between the Jackal on the rear-left and other Jackals was the largest, leaving a large enough space to breakout.
Of course, it’s still not the time to escape, because now, as long as his intentions are exposed, they have enough time to adjust their positions.
Therefore, it’s necessary for him to be as close as possible to the rear-left Jackal before breaking out.
The moment Fang Yun thought about that, he didn’t waste time, slowly retreating, he created the illusion that he fell into their trap, but while retreating, his body was “inadvertently” creeping to the left.
after some time passed, he was about only 20 meters away from the rear-left Jackal.
As for the jackals in other directions, they are nearly a 100 meter away from his location, even if they want to support the rear-left Jackal, it will take some time to reach its location.
Thinking of this, Fang Yun muscles tightened, his body that was slowly retreating backward sharply turned left at that instant.
His body quickly slithered on the ground, crawling a distance of 6 to 7 meters every second.
Speed isn’t usually the strong point of snakes, apart from their attack speed, most snakes crawling speed can’t even reach ten miles per hour, much slower than the average human. Pythons speed is even slower than that of snakes, reaching a pitiful 1 mile per hour;
But Fang Yun is different from other snakes and pythons. The reason why the system names each of his upgrades “evolution” and not simply upgrade, is that because with each evolution all his properties collectively increase, including physical properties,( strength, speed, endurance, etc…)
At this moment, his speed has already surpassed what any snake could hope to reach.
The jackal on the rear-left side, originally standing still, after seeing that Fang Yun is rushing towards him, quickly adjusted his position after a slight surprise.
The other Jackals in the other four directions also began to rush toward Fang Yun.
Jackals speed can be considered quite fast, reaching 50 kilometers per hour, more importantly, their endurance is excellent, with the ability to keep running with that speed for more than 20 km.
The other Jackals speeded up, quickly closing the distance between them and Fang Yun, but he has almost reached the rear-left jackal.
This Jackal howled at the approaching Fang Yun, trying to intimidate him.
Seeing this scene, Fang Yun did not reduce his speed but crawled towards the jackal even faster.
When he reached a position of less than a meter, Fang Yun immediately attacked him.
The jackal jumped back, at the same time, he waved his claws at Fang Yun head, trying to kill him in one stroke.
Just as the its sharp claws almost touched his head, Fang Yun, in an incredible act of flexibility, leaned his head to side mid-air and at fast speeds, dodging the jackal attack, at the same time, he bit toward its hind legs who are still hanging in the air.
A piercing scream immediately sounded.
Fang Yun venom toxicity is already very powerful, and according to the reaction of the animals he previously bit, his venom also causes burning pain in the wound after the bite.
This jackal mourned like a wounded dog, feeling a piercing pain on his hind leg, but he still wanted to chase after Fang Yun. Walking two steps before powerlessly falling to the ground;
The other four jackals stiffened at this sight, shocked, a jackal ran to the side of the fallen one to check on its situation, the remaining three crazily chased after Fang Yun.
Fang Yun, who is crawling ahead, is quickly slithering to the front, while his speed might be slightly inferior to the jackals, he isn’t particularly worried.
Because he has already found a place to hide in.
There is a rabbit hole not far from here, he remembered its location while passing here before.
He originally remembered these rabbit holes locations, just to facilitate his own hunting, who would have expected them to act as a refuge for him now.
Reaching the hole edge, Fang Yun immediately drilled into it.
Not even two seconds later, the three jackals reached the hole location and inserted their mouth in the hole, howling at him.
Fang Yun, who was crawling deeper into the rabbit hole, didn’t pay attention to the jackal’s howl, after all, no matter how much they struggled, they wouldn’t be able to enter it.
So he didn’t worry about them following him inside the hole.
Slowly crawling deeper into the rabbit hole, he wanted to see if this hole owner is inside. If the rabbit is there, he doesn’t mind treating it as his own dinner
Crawling for about three to four meters, the hole suddenly widened, and not far from him, a furry rabbit was staring at him with its eyes wide open.
Suddenly, he attacked it with very fast speed.
But what annoyed him was that he bit into the air, the rabbit quickly ran out of this hole from another passage.
Looking at the back of the rabbit, Fang Yun gave up pursuing it.
If a rabbit ran without him poisoning it, then the hunting can be called a fail.
He currently does not have enough speed and agility to pursue an unharmed escaping rabbit.
However, Fang Yun quickly adjusted his mentality and quietly rested in the cave. Hunting failure is a common occurrence for any predator, no matter what is its position on the food chain.
If they get annoyed every time the hunting fails, then all predators are estimated to be very depressed.
He is planning to rest here for one night and leave tomorrow.
After calming down, Fang Yun quickly fell asleep. after all he is quite tired from the exploration this day, and the jackal’s chase. Next morning, he woke up early, crawling outside the rabbit hole to breath fresh air.
However, the moment he crawled outside the hole, he quickly shrank back. At the moment his head popped outside the hole, a few meters away four jackals quickly ran over to him.
The four of them inserted their mouth inside the hole, aggressively howling at Fang Yun inside.
Fang Yun was stunned, did these four jackals stay in front of this hole the whole night?
