The Serpent's Trail is the first segment of the thirteenth episode of the second season of Dragon Tales.




Emmy brings a detective kit to Dragon Land.

Then Cyrus notices Emmy's detective kit and steals it. Little did he know, he ran in mud and left behind footprints, making it easier for the gang to track him down. Meanwhile, Cyrus gets caught onto a tree branch. He does escape, but doesn't notice his bowtie coming off and keeps running.

Then, it is revealed that Cyrus stole Emmy's detective kit to help him find dragon-gull eggs, using Emmy's magnifying glass (since he did say that he was going on a treasure hunt). After he finds them, Cyrus takes some eggs out of the holes. Then, he gets caught by the gang. Emmy tells him to give her detective kit back, to which he does. Before he can take the eggs, Cassie tells him that they do not belong to him, either. Cyrus tries to explain, but gets scolded by the gang. He puts the eggs down, however, he asks "Can I just have one itty-bitty egg?" to which the gang says no. Cyrus leaves, feeling angry and muttering under his breath.

After Cyrus leaves, the Dragon-Gull eggs hatch and Max and Emmy go home.
