Storyline

Out one evening, Jack, Will and Holly stumble across an old wooden carving of a Sleestak with some detailed symbols on its chest. They decide to take it home with them to examine it further. They learn from Enik that the Sleestak believe the statue, which was carved and placed there by their long deceased ancestors, is an ancient guardian, protecting them from the "hairy monster", who they call the kona and which is akin to a yeti, from coming through the mountain pass from the high country into the low land where they live.

Goofs

According to this episode, the Ancient Guardian has protected the Sleestak from the northern marauder for centuries, yet when the Marshalls handle the statue, it's clear that it's just sitting on a pedestal without any mechanism to anchor it. This makes absolutely no sense, as there are rain, wind, and earthquakes in the Land of the Lost. Will even throws something heavy at the statue, and it doesn't fall off its pedestal.

So which is it: Does the statue stand freely (and precariously), or is it anchored so that its position relative to the marauder's crevice never changes, even slightly? See more »
