Kesey argues that wolves are the threatening forces that dictate the lifestyle of rabbits. The wolf asserts her dominance over the rabbits and controls their potential for freedom. All the while, Nurse Ratched’s dominance is found in her direct control of the machine that is the mental hospital.

Alternating light and dark stripes along their cheeks and backs help them hide from predators such as hawks, weasels, coyotes, etc. Chipmunks are small mammals and hibernate in their dens or “burrows” during the winter like bears but they do not use fat to keep themselves alive. They like to live alone in their dens and they are good at climbing trees and are great swimmers. One chipmunk can gather up to 165 acorns in one day which means that within just two days, that chipmunk would have enough food to last them the whole winter even though they typically more food than they need; safety precautions, am I right?!

Humans and nonhuman primates have virtually the same physical and behavioral characteristics; however, there are several aspects that distinguish them from one another.
