It was also the first time for Gulu to see such a large ice waterfall. It's impossible for the plains that they walked through before to form such an ice waterfall.
Pado's group was so large that it immediately filled the entire glacier. They could only move slowly toward the opposite side. Many Triceratopses were still waiting on the shore. They couldn't go down until the front had passed.
Gulu said to Babana: "Mom, we want to go under the ice waterfall and have a look. Can you take us there?"
Babana doted on Gulu very much and this glacier was small. Their group was too large to finish crossing for a while. It's possible to take the young ones to see it.
Under Babana's leadership, the four cubs came to the falls.
A thick ice wall was formed at the junction of the waterfall and the glacier below, but there was a big gap that's not blocked by the ice wall. They walked from this gap to the ice cave behind.
Babana and the four cubs were shocked.
Looking from inside the ice cave, the entire ice waterfall turned blue. Thick ice was covered with soft blue light that seemed to come in from the outside.
Gulu: No one can get tired of this beauty!
Satisfied, Gulu kept rubbing on Babana's neck and said, "Mom, isn't it beautiful? It's so beautiful…"
Babana rubbed back at Gulu and replied, "Hmm, it's very beautiful, Gulu." The three younger siblings also rubbed against each other and Gulu while agreeing that it's beautiful.
After enjoying the beautiful blue ice waterfall, they continued to walk along with the group. At this time, they made it to the middle of the group and didn't delay the journey at all.
After crossing this glacier, they arrived at a very open fern field. It's getting late at this time. The sun was setting fast. Pado asked the group to eat and rest on this fern field before leaving tomorrow.
Many other migrating herbivorous dinosaurs also chose to eat and rest on this fern field because it's very large. The ferns were enough for many dinosaurs to eat. There're forests on both sides of this fern fields, so the tall dinosaurs could eat leaves there.
Gulu observed the terrain here while eating.
This fern field was indeed rich enough, because at the end of this broad fern field was a tall snowy mountain and the melted snow water on the snowy mountain nourished this forest and fern field.
There was a huge ice waterfall hanging between the snow-capped mountains and the forest in the distance. According to Gulu's visual observation, the ice waterfall was at least 1000 meters high and 200 to 300 meters wide, looking just like a huge silvery white curtain falling from the sky.
There was also a huge "ice tongue" between the fern field and the forest. It's the glacier water under the huge ice tongue that nourished the fern field and the forest.
As its name implied, an ice tongue was a phenomenon of ice and snow in the shape of a "tongue". Ice tongue flowed, but the flow rate was very slow. A large amount of glacier water flowed out of the tip of the ice.
This huge ice tongue looked really like a huge glittering "tongue" from a distance and it also continuously poured out a large amount of crystal clear "saliva" glacier water.

As night fell, the distant waterfall turned into a giant luminous body together with the snow and ice on the surrounding mountains, making the night here very bright with deep blue hues everywhere.
Pado knew that this fern field was too large and was surrounded by forests. Basically, all migrating herbivorous dinosaurs would eat and rest in this fern field and the surrounding forests, which would definitely attract many, many polar carnivorous dinosaurs.
This night was doomed to be restless.
So Pado organized a tight defense.
Indeed as expected, after midnight, many Cryolophosaurus and Yutyrannus came to hunt. The fern fields and forests were full of the sounds of herbivorous dinosaurs fighting with carnivorous dinosaurs. All kinds of roars and bam-bam-bam noises kept on sounding.
However, there're many herbivorous dinosaur groups here. Triceratops had naturally high defense. And as the most powerful Triceratops group, many carnivorous dinosaurs wouldn't choose Pado's group to hunt.
Many other herbivorous dinosaur groups, such as Protoceratops, Diplodocus, Ankylosaurus, Camptosaurus, Stegosaurus, Hadrosaurus and so on were attacked more frequently.
Of course, Pado's group was also attacked, with more than a dozen Cryolophosaurus attacking them, but Pado had actively organized defense before and was prepared for the attack. A dozen Cryolophosaurus was nothing.
The Parasaurolophus group next to Pado was also attacked, but their roars were really too loud, especially for the sensitive dinosaurs. All carnivorous dinosaurs simply couldn't stand them. The carnivorous dinosaurs that attacked them quickly ran away, which also helped Pado's group to drive away the other carnivorous dinosaurs.
The Parasaurolophus were really amazing. They could make the roaring sound especially harsh to carnivorous dinosaurs, but not so harsh to herbivorous dinosaurs. It's just enough to be within the acceptable range of Pado's dinosaurs.
Gulu and his three siblings were all protected in the center of the group. They were basically free from any danger.
Mungo's group was also hunting, but Tyrannosaurus rex was more efficient than local predators such as Cryolophosaurus and Yutyrannus.
Soon, Mungo's group hunted an adult Triceratops and slept after eating.
Tyrannosaurus rex never had to worry about a dinosaur sneak attacking them during their sleep. In the entire continent of Yukan, only the Tyrannosaurus rex group could sleep so carefree anytime and anywhere.
The carnivorous dinosaurs were even more afraid to attack Pado's group because of the Parasaurolophus group, which had a particularly frightening roar.
Later in the night, while other herbivorous dinosaur groups were still fighting, Pado's group and the Parasaurolophus began to sleep.
Of course, Pado still arranged some dinosaurs to keep guard. Triceratopses were very clever. Even if they slept, they would take turns to keep guard.
Pado's group had a good rest last night and woke up first the next day. They began to eat and immediately continued their migration when they were full.
Gulu didn't expect that the Parasaurolophus would "roar back" a lot of carnivorous dinosaurs for them. Long's group was really strong.
Last night, Pado also felt very grateful to Long and took Gulu with him to find Long.
Long looked at Pado and Gulu walking towards him with a blank face.
Gulu knew that Long had forgotten again. Long's eyes seemed to say: I don't know you very well. Why did you come to me?!
Then Gulu gave Long a brief account of their previous experience before Long remembered.
Pado thanked Long while Gulu stressed it again to Long. Stay close to Pado's group. Stay close.
In fact, Long remembered that he must follow Pado's group, but he didn't know why.
It took them most of the time to get out of this huge fern field, eating as they walked. It wasn't easy to meet such a fertile fern field, of course, they had to eat enough.
Mungo's group had been closely following Pado's group. Gulu could see them at any time when looking back.
After leaving the fern field, they must bypass the tall snow mountain in front of them.
Groups of herbivorous dinosaurs walked under the foot of the snow mountain. There're many dinosaur groups walking in front of Pado's group and many walking behind.
There was a valley between the snow mountain and the forest. All herbivorous dinosaurs needed to pass through this valley. A huge fern field and some strange peaks could be seen vaguely across the valley.
This valley was relatively small. When they reached the middle, they were blocked by a deep gap that they couldn't pass.
The first to arrive groups were wandering around this gap and didn't know what to do.
The gap was at least 20 meters deep. The slopes on both sides were vertical. Even the tallest Argentinosaurus couldn't go down and come back up.

Gulu carefully observed that the gap spread down from the tall snow mountains, that was to say, the gap might have been a big river.
The snow mountain might be the birthplace of the big river. The gap across this valley was equivalent to the "spout" of the big river.
If so, there must be an ice waterfall, where a natural ice bridge may form.
The formation of a natural ice bridge was to use water to agitate under a narrow spout and the agitated sediment and water would be frozen to form a natural ice bridge.
Gulu immediately asked Mungo to take him along the gap. They found a natural ice bridge in the most remote part of the valley.
However, this ice bridge couldn't bear too many dinosaurs passing through. If a dinosaur stepped on the ice bridge first, the trampled part could perfectly fit the gap.
Gulu immediately called the Parasaurolophus to come over and tried to make them roar down the ice bridge, but the ice bridge was too thick, and its structure was different from the last ice caves. It's very strong and Parasaurolophus didn't roar it down.
Soon, other dinosaurs discovered the ice bridge and walked over it one after another.
Gulu asked Mungo's and Pado's group to wait a little longer. Don't rush to go first. Pado, of course, listened.
One group after another of dinosaurs walked over the ice bridge.
Suddenly, Gulu heard a great noise from the valley. He looked up at the snow mountain and saw an avalanche!
Avalanches would soon flood the valley! They must cross to the other side at once, but the ice bridge couldn't accommodate all dinosaurs!
The sound of the terrifying avalanche made all dinosaurs in the valley rush to the ice bridge.
