"A big tree with a thick trunk and outspread branches was near by, and, taking care to leave not the slightest mark, he climed up the tree and rested."
"300 yards from his hiding place he stopped where a hugedead tree leaned percariously on a smaller, living one. Throwing off his sack of food, Rainsford took his knife from its sheath and began to work with all his energy."
Burmese Tiger Trap
"You've done well rainsford, your brumese tiger trap has taken one of my best dogs."
In order to hide from zaroff he hides out in a tree blending himself in.
While running through the forrest to try and hide from zaroff, he spots some things that made him think about how he can use those to make a trap for zaroff.
After whitnicing the performance of the malay mancatcher, Rainsford saw that the ground was soft enough to make another trap for zaroff but it got his dog instead.
The trap failed for zaroff but got Ivan.
"He saw that general zarroff had lived but ivan on the other hand did not."
zaroff came to his room and in shock to see rainsford standing there as if he was waiting for him.
