The monkey symbolises evolution of humans as we came from them. Melinda hands a penny over to a monkey and it takes it, showing that humans are very alike. Humans too, are greedy and have a matching nature. Hornbeck says after the monkey takes the penny “How could you ask of better proof than that? There 's the father of the human race!”(Lawrence and Lee 16).
Considered sacred by the ancient Egyptians, the Hamadryas Baboon is distinguished from other baboons by the male 's long, silver-grey shoulder cape, and the pink or red rather than black face. Like all baboons, the Hamadryas Baboon is a large monkey with a dog-like face, pronounced brow ridges, relatively long limbs with short digits, rather coarse fur, and a relatively short tail, which in this species has a tufted tip. The male is considerably larger than the female, and has a heavy cape, bushy cheeks, and large canine teeth. While the male Hamadryas Baboon develops a silvery-grey coat, the juvenile and female are brown. Like all baboons, the Hamadryas Baboon is primarily terrestrial, but will sleep in trees or on cliffs at night.
Residing in the jungles of Madagascar, the Aye-aye is a very unique creature in the Animalia kingdom and is the only member of its family classification.

Having effects on local animals starts out with the fact that Burmese pythons are carnivores. Source 1 states,” Burmese pythons are carnivores and survive primarily on small birds and mammals.” (Source 1). This shows how burmese pythons are carnivores and primarily feast on small birds and mammals such as opossums, raccoons, and bobcats, as well as other bird species. As roaming around freely in the Everglades, Burmese pythons don’t have any natural predators.

Its diet consists predominantly of bamboo, about 95%; which is very atypical for a mammal.
Sloths are very strange animals with their sluggish behaviors, yet they are very interesting at the same time. Sloths belong to the mammalian order Xenarthra, which also includes armadillos and anteaters. There are two different kinds of sloths, the two-toed and the three-toed sloth. There are four species of three-toed sloths and two species of two-toed sloths. Two of these species of sloth can be found in the tropical forests of Costa Rica, the brown-throated three-toed sloth (Bradypus variegatus) and Hoffmann’s two-toed sloth (Choloepus hoffmanni).

Power is a stunning instrument that can either build towering nations or destroy them. Under certain hands, civilizations can prosper and achieve goals far beyond human comprehension; but in the hands of savage and irrational beings, civilization can dissolve into madness. In Lord of the Flies by William Golding, a groups of young boys are stranded on a deserted island after a plane crash. The boys try to build a temporary society until they are rescued, but as time goes on their civilization begins to suffer as leadership and power is tossed around. Soon, power is put into the hands of more savage people, such as Jack or Roger, until their civilizations crumble.
There have been many myths that people have handed down over the course of human history. One such myth is the Greek myth of Hades specifically, of that of Cerberus the guard dog of Hades. Cerberus was the offspring of Echidna and Typhon and was often described as having three heads, a serpent for a tail, and snakes protruding from parts of his body. Though this was not always the case, in the earliest description in Hesiod's theogony from 8th - 7th century B.C., he was described having fifty heads, while later when described by Pindar in 522- 433 B.C. he had one hundred heads.
The context of this quote is when Jack wants to go hunt the beastie and Ralph is timid to go, because they believe that the ferocious, wild creature quite possibly exists. Jack asks if Ralph is frightened in a way that makes he himself look confident that the spears merely made of wood will be capable of protecting them. Ralph admits to being scared and they end up going on this hunt. Although the “beastie” is only a mental scare, Jack still is a completely different person when he assumes the role of the hunter.
