1) Rainsford moves in a path intended to confuse Zaroff. He winds around and doubles back, walking (running) in loops. This attempt to lose Zaroff is unsuccessful.

2) Rainsford's first true trap is what was called a Malay mancatcher. He made the trap by balancing a dead tree upon a cut living tree. One of the boughs is then set as a trigger for the trap, which when set off would cause the dead tree to fall.

3) There was also the Burmese tiger pit. This trap was created by digging a hole in the Death Swamp and filling it with stakes, which were then hidden by woven grass. One of Zaroff's dogs is killed in this trap.
