更新时间:2010-12-04    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:英语作文网

An adventurous moneybags invited his friend, who’s an archaeologist, his cousin, a mercenary youngster, along with two bodyguards to a remote and uninhabited island 300 miles off New Zealand, where it is said that there are peculiar creatures. Besides that, pirates used to hide their loots there in the old times and failed to collect them.

They tied their boat to a tree near a coast and equipped themselves with guns and backpacks, setting out to explore the island. The moneybags spotted an enormous turtle under a tree 100 meters away and went there to check it out with his companions. It was a peculiar turtle with four eyes, two of which were on its upper neck. The archaeologist exclaimed it was a rare turtle; four-eyed turtles discovered so far are all small ones, and it’s unusual that such rare turtle had grown so big. They went on into the jungle, where the mercenary youngster saw a 10-feet snake wound round a branch on a tree. One of the bodyguards is a snake expert, who said the snake is nothing but big, that it’s poisonless and timid.

Clearly, after being discovered, the sake tried to run away. The moneybags was eager to find a snake nest and thus followed the snake. The snake passed through a nest in which there were five gigantic eggs. The moneybags called out to his companions and said that he found some gigantic snake eggs. The archaeologist looked at the eggs with astonishment; he knew they weren’t snake eggs, that they belong to animals of colossal size. After close examination, the archaeologist exclaimed in terror, “Run! These are not snake eggs. They are dinosaur eggs!” Then they hurried away from the nest.

Those eggs were raptors’. Raptors are a type of dinosaurs; they are huge(compared to humans), fierce carnivorous animals. They not only have a fast running speed, but they have a very keen sense of smell. If anyone stole their eggs to a place 5 miles away, they would still be able to track down the thief.

The mercenary youngster couldn’t sleep that night, for thinking how much money he could get for selling the dinosaur eggs. Undoubtedly, they are priceless, as developed countries would definitely want to get them for researches on dinosaurs. After daybreak, he snuck away from his tent alone, carrying a large empty bag and heading to the dinosaur nest. He didn’t see any dinosaur nearby, so he quickly put the eggs into his bag and ran. On his way back, he saw something glisten behind ivies 100 meters away, so he went there to check it out. Behind the ivies there was a cave where privates stashed their treasures. The youngster was overjoyed. He took the eggs out and wanted to filled the bag with the treasures first and then put the eggs bag. Even though the bag was nearly filled, there were still plenty of antiques and jewelries left. He continued to fill his pockets and his shoes, unwilling to leave, as he always wanted to take more treasures. Suddenly, he heard loud snorts. He turned back and saw three raptors of 10 feet high outside the cave. They swiftly jumped up and bit the youngster with their long and sharp teeth.
