“Warming Up” Have you ever been so taken aback that you wanted to have a little revenge? This often happens when someone pulls a prank. There is some unspoken rule that you can get someone back if they pull a prank on you. It is a satisfying obligation of sorts. This could result in a sportsman like back and forth but more often than not, the intensity increases. This can lead to an arms race of pranks, and possibly truly hurt feelings.

Perhaps that is what the chimera is feeling right now after Pōk’s sudden snore. I mean, how embarrassing is that? So, the hunter could have just continued its attack on the sleeping gobo and had a fine snack. Instead, the chimera has decided to give Pōk a “fiery lick” as a wake-up call. Just a little heat to let its prey know that the danger is just warming up. And, to top it off, what a confident Grinch grin! Our little gobo only risks a quick peek before running off to sound the alarm. Maybe that is why the frantic description of the predator is a bit jumbled. Lions, goats and snakes, oh my!
