Tiny was always trying to find out where she came from and decided to make her way back to the island but there were sharks in the sea around the lab protecting it.

Because she was so small she decided that she could hide on the back of a shark, land without being seen, and creep through the cracks in the wall of the lab.

When she peeked into the room she saw Beff, Jeff’s older brother who was the evil scientist’s bodyguard.
