Reptiles’ Rule!
  
The remnant would not disappear. They hid underground, in the grasses, behind rocks and along the oceans. While there was only a small remainder and repression was constant, they all agreed that there would some day be a reprisal that would cause them to be more renowned than ever before. And they would relish that day when they were no longer seen as relics from the distant past. For reptiles were watching, and though there was a renaissance of interest in their ancestors, the dinosaurs, there would be repercussions where no remorse or mercy would be shown towards humans. The reptiles would someday rule the earth again!
  
Over the years the reptiles’ repertoire of defenses against humans had grown. They could repel people with sounds and movements that created fear in humans that was reminiscent of the dinosaurs they all seemed to love.
  
But the advancement of human culture was relentless and the day for repaying humans for taking over the world seemed further and further away. Some reptiles had even come to a certain reliance on humans. But other reptiles reproached these and told them that one day they would have to renounce the people they called their owners.
  
So they all waited and looked forward to the day when they would renovate the world for reptiles again. And when the reptiles were big strong enough no other species would be able to repeal their rule! The dinosaur age would come again!

【译文】
爬行动物的统治
  
残留部分就是不消失。他们藏在地下、藏在草丛里、藏在岩石后面并且沿海也有。尽管剩下的数量很少,而且镇压不断,他们都认为总有一天会出现报复行为,而这种报复将使他们比以往任何时候都更有名气,而且他们将从这一天获得乐趣,因为到那时他们将不再被看成是遥远过去的遗迹。由于爬行动物在观看,尽管人们再次对他们的祖先恐龙产生了兴趣,但是将来总会出现人类既不表示痛恨、也不表示怜悯的后果,终将有一天爬行动物将重新统治地球!
  
多年来,爬行动物对人类的全部防卫能力已经增加,他们能用使人类害怕的声音和动作让他们感到厌恶,这种害怕会使他们想起他们似乎都很喜爱的恐龙。
但是人类文化的向前发展是毫不留情的,报复人类接管世界的那一天似乎越来越遥远。有些爬行动物甚至对人类形成了某种依赖,但是其他爬行动物却批评并告诉他们说,有朝一日他们将不得不抛弃他们称之为主人的人。
  
因此他们都等待着盼望着这一天,到那时他们将再次为爬行动物修复整个世界。等到爬行动物长得够壮够大时,其他物种都将无法废止他们的统治!恐龙时代将再次来临!
