The Slithering Trap (蠢く罠, Ugomeku Wana) is the 30th chapter of the Hunter × Hunter manga, written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi.

SynopsisEdit

Leorio and Kurapika are still trying to find Leorio's target, but they haven't met anyone in three days. They continue to search when Gon catches up to them. Kurapika says it's possible that his target may already be dead or had her tag stolen, which makes Leorio lose hope. Gon says that he can trace her whereabouts by following the scent of her medicine, and the three of them travel together.

They reach the entrance of a cave. Leorio scouts the entrance and says he's going to go in alone. He asks Kurapika and Gon to leave now, but both of them insist on staying to help. They wait outside as Leorio goes inside. Suddenly, he lets out a scream that there are snakes inside. Kurapika and Gon immediately rush in to help.

Inside, they see Bourbon the snake charmer, and Leorio's target, Ponzu. Leorio is in great pain as he was bitten by numerous snakes. Gon says the snakes are not very venomous, but the bites are numerous and could be fatal. Gon tries to inhale the venom, but Kurapika says they must bring him to a doctor. Ponzu says that once they've entered the cave, none of them will escape because of Bourbon's snake trap. Kurapika tries to convince Bourbon to let them go in exchange for tags, but Ponzu says that is impossible because Bourbon is already dead.
