The characters in The Life of Pi are all actually components of the self. At a higher level, the Tiger is Pi’s primal self, the orangutan represents universal love – as demonstrated by a protective mother, the brutal hyena is the malevolent cook who is the shadow, and the timid zebra is a young sailor with a broken leg, which represents youthful innocence and is the first to die.

In 1994, Disney created the film, The Lion King—where a young cub named Simba is destined to be king and save his kingdom from his evil uncle, who killed his father. This Disney animated film is to be seen as a joyful. However, many do not acknowledge the hidden meanings that are included in the movie.

Oh, if any one saw him be so delicate and fragile, they would make fun of him, and tell jokes about him. Lions are supposed to be big and rough that was not true for Loken.

Over the course of the semester I have learns a lot about primates. Some things I already had knowledge of, a lot were things I could not have even thought were primate related. From the (occasional) meat-eating chimpanzee to the shock of lemurs being more primate than weasel my knowledge has expanded a great deal.
