The Belly of the Beast is the one hundred and second episode of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, and the fourth episode of season eleven.
Trapped on a ridge and surrounded by circling vultures and giant scarab beetles, the Ninja try in vain to contact P.I.X.A.L. on the Land Bounty's radio. Having determined that they have less than a day's worth of water, they further discover that they can't get the Land Bounty running again without the inverter swallowed by the giant beetle. Zane determiens that the only way to survive is to recover the part, meaning that one of them must be eaten by the beetle to recover it. After a tournament of rock, paper, clam, Zane is chosen, and after drawing the beetle's attention is swallowed.
As the other Ninja worry, Zane awakens after experiencing visions of a giant snake, a golden Serpentine, a frozen castle, and a dragon. Recovering the part, he calls for an extraction, but the other Ninja are unable to get him out using Cole's rock cycle as planned. The Ninja are forced into a battle with the massive insects, and manage to get Zane out. With the Land Bounty repaired, they are able to outrun the scarabs and continue their journey.
