Land covered in ice and snow gradually decreased as they moved forward, and Crunchy Grass became something they could see everywhere. Although there was still snowfall, it was much better than the severe blizzards they would experience in their original territory. To these two Kantas cubs who were accustomed to the cold, this climate was comfortable to an unbelievable extent.
But only the weather was comfortable. Their stomachs were unbearably uncomfortable.
Although Kantases were omnivores, in order to maintain their physical strength and to fulfil their growing requirements, meat was still more important in their diets. Currently, Black and his family were faced with a challenge: the food they usually ate was nowhere to be found.
After leaving the cliff, they ran for three days. During these three days, they did not see even a shadow of other dinosaurs. They could only rely on the consumption of large quantities of Crunchy Grass to maintain their stamina.
“Chirp… Chirp…” Louis let out small chirps. He was extremely hungry, and eating Crunchy Grass everyday could not meet the needs of this growing cub.
“Louis, be good, Daddy is looking for meat for you guys to eat.” Black turned his head, using his mouth to nuzzle the listless cub slumped on his shoulder, patiently comforting him.
Louis, who originally had shiny feathers and a fat body, had shrunk by a size. On the other hand, their bald baby, who always made them worry about his growth, was not too affected by multiple days of vegetarian diet. He even seemed to grow well. This made Black somewhat relieved.
The fear of losing each other due to the previous incident was still deeply rooted in their hearts. This caused them to stick together even when foraging for food. They would rather carry their babies on their backs than to leave them in place.
“Chirp!” Louis, whose eyes were closing and about to sleep, suddenly chirped, and with a burst of energy, he stepped off Black’s shoulder and slid down his back.
“What’s up with Louis?” White, who always had his attention on Black, rushed to them.
“I think he discovered something.” Black followed closely behind Louis.
After a few incidents, they found out that Louis was different from other cubs: His sense of smell was far superior to the other winged people, allowing him to frequently discover things that others couldn’t. For example, the fruit that Baby ate and the Crunchy Grass that they first found. His hearing was also exceptional, allowing him to be the first to find out about the earthquake at that time.
Adding these incidents together, Black took Louis’ actions seriously.
Louis ran for a couple hundred meters before coming to a stop. He chirped to Black and White, before using his little paws to dig the snow. Black and White picked up their pace and joined him in digging. The layer of snow, that wasn’t very thick to begin with, was quickly turned over to reveal–
“Ah! Utah Raptor!probably this? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utahraptor” Black and White exclaimed in surprise.
“Human!!” ← Meng Jiuzhao let out a scream of horror so soft it could be directly ignored.
Under the snow, other than a Utah Raptor, there was actually a person!
Translator has something to say:
Just in case you did not realise, Black and White call Meng Jiuzhao Baby. Also, I decided to add the volume number for the chapters since the story has different arcs. Also, I did a search on Taobao for this book, and I saw a cover with the english translation of the title being “Back to the Jurassic”. I’ve grown attached to POA as its title though, so I’ll keep it as that. Maybe I’ll add it as an alternative name on the NU page. And lastly, I’ve started rereading No Afterlife again and I feel so soft and fluffy. Much needed fluff!

So in order for MJZ to have a name, Louis needs to call him? Like MJZ did for him?
Hahahahahha a human??? Wait so is MJZ a human or a kantas? They said he had barely there wings but he’s fur-less….
Thanks for the chapter ♡
Meng Jiuzhao is pure human and he does have a name in this world, he’s called Baby. Meng Jiuzhao is just his name from his past life and the author uses it in the story. His parents called Louis that because he replied when Meng Jiuzhao called him that, so it stuck.
I’ll go and check the previous chapters if I accidentally translated it as him having wings ><
