Exaggerated Tales of Oreo Jones - Derbis Island 15
Day 15: Today was our last day on the island, and the trek back to the base camp was mostly uneventful. We tried to take in as much of the scenery as we could but we knew we had to leave. Dr. Picklesworth was still broken up about having to abandon the search for the Derbis Island Giant Snail after getting so close. He cried almost the whole way back, he didn't even laugh when Raulado almost walked right into the mouth of a bucktoothed Crocodile. The screams as he panicked were the best, and he barely got away after the loud snapping sound made by the strong jaws slamming shut in front of him. He stumbled backwards and ran back to us, as we t

Day 14: The day started out well, we located a herd of Derbis Goats. This was one of the most exciting parts for Dr. Fleecier who is an expert on goats. He enjoyed photographing them as Ottera took notes. I most enjoyed the part when the goats started using Raulado like a ball and just kept head butting him back and forth. This may have been a good time to stop them, but they are fairly small goats and were not going to cause much damage. After spending time with the goats, we moved back into the jungle needing to cover a lot of land, and explore the best we could with the limited time we have left on this island. This is where the day starte

Day 13: Our expedition is approaching the end and we only have a short amount of time left on the island. Today we continued moving toward the last section of the island, trying to get as much work done as we could before we had to head back to base camp and meet up with our boat home. As we followed the river toward the edge to the jungle, we noticed something and quickly stopped. A large dark shadow appeared in the water following us. Not wanting to scare off the animal or trigger a possible attack on ourselves, we slowly continued moving toward the beach and out of the jungle. Wishing for more sunlight so we could finally see what it is th

Day 12: The farther we go into the jungle the more different it starts to look from the other side of the island, the jungle is much thicker and many parts are darker. The trees reach much higher and we are starting to notice sounds of other creatures around us. Some familiar like the calls of the hussies but then we heard calls that sounded like larger birds high in the canopy and the sound of small monkeys. We let Raulado think he was guiding us as we used him to test for danger ahead of us, letting him walk at least 15 paces in front of us at all times. Soon we learned that we were not the only one following Raulado around, a medium sized

Raulado is finally a semi functioning human being and we continued on with our journey. The pills seem to have effected his ability to think and he is too high to properly guide us. We have become lost into the jungle. We won't hold his incompetence against him, and are taking this opportunity to further explore the island. Our colleague, Dr. Cornelius Picklesworth, the expeditions most capable Snailologist, is very hopeful with the turn of events. He thinks this may be just what we need to find the islands legendary creature, the Giant Derbis Snail. Not much is known about this snail, or even if it exists, but we are hoping to find evidence

Day 10: Our day started earlier than planned with the screams of Raulado. The pills had worn off and his cries echoed through the jungle. We gave him a bunch of pills and gave him a stick wrapped with a bandanna to bite down on, hoping it would keep his screams down, as he was scaring off the animals. Sadly this didn't work because apparently he is more sensitive to pain than we thought, which meant we had to limit our research for the day. We decided to photograph the landscape and sketch and document all we could. Raulado's screams did not deter one creature though, it instead summoned the French Skunk. We first noticed when the skunk began

Day 9: We hit another set back, while exploring a pond and river near by to document the other wildlife on Derbis isIand, Raulado has had another dangerous encounter. While fantastic at guiding us he is not the most careful person when it comes to his own safety. While photographing and documenting Derbis Praying Mantis and Derbis Lady Bugs with Dr. Fleecier and his intern Miss Ottera Newfie, we heard the screams of Raulado and quickly ran to him. He was still holding the tail of a male Derbis Island Platypus as it dug it's spurs into his arms and envenomating  him. The pain was instant, but of course as scientist our priorities were to photo

Day 8: We arrived back at camp to check on Raulado and discovered he received only a dry bite from the Derbis Snake and is able to continue on. After locating a good spot full of game trails clearly traveled heavily by snails we set up camp. We also encountered another problem, as Dr. Whale Fleecier has explained to me we heard the mating call of the French Skunk. We heard the echos of "Wooo Wooo" through the forest and then we saw it. We stood still as to not scare it off and observe it's actions. The French Skunk is an invasive species and only natural predator is the rarely seen angrywife, which means it is left free to prey on the poor go
