Acacia has to drop lightly out of the trees to examine the tracks, but she returns to them to follow. She can feel her blood rising, preparing to meet the challenge. She imagines her pride in scoring a massive trophy to show off to Jonah and Furball.
The fact that it's not typical of her to intentionally track something this size with the intentions of starting a fight never crosses her mind.
The tracks lead deeper into the forest. Judging by the disturbed leaves and branches on the trees, it stands about three meters in height. However, there are marks higher than that as well, suggesting some long appendages - arms, perhaps, or horns.
Eventually, Acacia will reach a wide valley surrounded with trees. At the bottom there lies a bulky, massive shape. It's hard to discern what it is from a distance and in the murky light.
