Meanwhile in the tank,Mac,Sam and Toby are angry that the equipment have been ruined and Toby tires to fix it but finds it impossible due to the amount of damage and decide that she can use parts from the ruined ones to create new ones that can be destroyed less easier,but the group of men arrive with Howard and Charlie

At the holding pens Jay's injures are causing him great pain forcing Sonia to try and knock him unconscious then she prepares to decrease the pain of his injures.In the Tank the men explain they have been give formal orders to assist the team weather they like it or not,then the mother Amebelodon begins to make noises from a nearby room and the men say that their boss has ordered all creatures to be killed but Sam tries to intervene but her efforts are in vain as they shoot the mother in the head.

Hearing the noise Sonia becomes wary from what has happened and Jay then wakes up and Sonia uses crouches to go to the tank where they are shocked to see the Project Magnet men and are even further shocked to see the dead Amebelodon mother the men then say they will remain here until they have served their purpose but Jay becomes suspicious then sits down and holds up one of his crouch and the small rubber bottom twists round then goes down and reveals a big gun the men then raise their guns ready to fire but Jay fires first and the men collapse as the electric rays knock them out,Toby then gets in contact with Project Magnet where the receptionist reveals that the men are not Project Magnet personnel and that the proper Project Magnet soldiers sent to help where hijacked in their van and they were forced to return to base,the receptionist then reveals she will send solider there to assist ASAP.
