: : *On the low end*, a three-pack of agile, pint-sized, carnivores.

: : Again I'm in need of your indispensable help:

: : is it simply the end of somewhere, which is lower, that is a location?

: : because later they say:
: : "Towering above them..."

: : Thanks a lot
: Almost certainly a reference to their small size. An interesting choice of words, though. "On the low end" is often used to describe those items that are cheapest on a price list or menu. The metaphor works if my guess is right.

"But no one's *wired to stay afraid* for too long, including Pod"

somehow I don't understand this sentence. I know that wired is excited or nervous but what does he want to say exactly?
Thanks a lot
