Raisford sets up a few traps to hinder his capture. There is the "Maylay man catcher, the Burmese tiger pit, and some other tree spring thing. Rainsford tries to scatter his track, hides in a tree and he also jumps into the ocean. He is a good swimmer and swims back to the castle. Zaroff's dogs don't pick up the scent because Zaroff is in the water.

Let me try again with fewer silly errors.

Raisford sets up a few traps to hinder his capture. There is the "Maylay man catcher", "the Burmese tiger pit" ( I love these names!), and some other tree spring thing. Rainsford tries to scatter his tracks, hides in a tree and he also jumps into the ocean. He is a good swimmer (he is more or less perfect) and swims back to the castle. Zaroff's dogs don't pick up the scent because Rainsford is in the water. I think Rainsford hides in Zaroff's bedroom closet or something when Zaroff returns. That wasn't a trick though, it was just creepy.
