Pi is stranded on a lifeboat in the middle of an ocean with a fully grown Bengal tiger. Not the best situation to be in, but Pi’s survival instincts kicked in to survive at all costs. One way Pi shows his survival instinct is according to the text, “And so I pushed aside all thoughts of Richard Parker and fearlessly went exploring for freshwater,” (Pi 81). Pi shows in this action that the thirst for water overtook his fear of a Bengal tiger! This action alone is mind boggling because he risks getting mauled by a tiger just to quench his thirst.
He killed almost all the easy kill animals after one night he was so tired out he decided to have a feast. So he went out to the water and was looking for fish. After a while of fish he almost gave up until he found what looked like a fish, but actually turned out to be a blob fish. He was so frightened and disgusted he ran away back to his camping spot. He did go back to the water because he thought it was dumb just to run away from a dumb, ugly fish, but of course he wasn 't going to eat it so he gave up on meat and stuck to
His sister, Carine, mentioned that he was mesmerized by nature when they first started taking hikes. His character started to build up when he was only a young curious boy. From a young age, he grew up quicker and had a passion for adventure. Thoreau quotes “You are lost the moment you set foot there. You know the path, but wonder, thrilled, over the bare and pathless rock, as if it were solidified air and cloud.” Chris stuck like glue to this quote because it gave an explanation on how he felt about nature.
So, he jumped in the water and swam as fast as a marlin and caught up to it and slammed his fist on the humongous boat. The boat stayed in tacked. Luscious Luke was now scared for his own life. So, he himself started fighting the big green beast. He yelled, “Curse you, You are as ugly as a mole rat!” Boo got angry and replied, “I will tear your head off like a piece of paper and eat you for
yelled Hill Billy. “I think i scraped my leg on a tree limb or something”. Hill Billy looked down at his legs and to his surprise was wading in the water in which the cottonmouth snakes breed. Hill Billy quickly tried to get out but the mud was thick. He called Camo over to see if she could assist in any way.
Fanning was dragged off the board and into the water, but he kicked, punched and screamed at the shark and took his ankle cord off. This they believe saved his life. The shark swam away and the boats were able to rescue Fanning without any scratches. It is a miracle that he was not hurt or killed.
In both stories a similar theme is every action has a consequence. In “A Sound of Thunder” Eckels steps off the path and his consequence is that he changes the future. In “Being Prey” Val goes into the main river and disobeys the rangers warning and her consequence is that she got attacked by a crocodile. Also in “A Sound of Thunder” Eckels sees the dinosaur he’s going to hunt and gets scared and panics so his consequence was he changed the future. In “Being Prey” Val gets out of the canoe so her consequence is she gets attacked by a crocodile.
In “Being Prey” the conflict was that Plumwood did not take good advice and became prey to a crocodile. “I was alone, severely injured, and many miles from help.” This quote from “Being Prey” also shows that Plumwood payed her dues and faced the consequences for not following the ranger’s advice to stay out of the channel. These two conflicts are similar because they were caused by not listening. The conflicts are different because they were affected by the setting and inner conflicts of the story and characters. An example of this is when Eckles panicked and went off of the designated piece of land.
They fought against the waterfall trying to climb it, but soon they caught the attention of demons. These demons laughing at the poor fish increased the height of the waterfall however, even though this happened one little fish never gave up. Finally it reached the top of the fall, noticing the fishes determination the heavens turned this little fish into a giant dragon. Do you think this little fish wanted to be a dragon? In the end the little fish only wanted to climb the waterfall, but his destiny lied elsewhere now that little fish roams the heavens a dragon for all to
I gave it a shot, and I could see my lizard going past the bed as the bass kept a steady eye on it. It gave me those three little nibbles they always give when biting down on a lure. When I felt those nibbles, I quickly jerked my rod and set the hook on my first bass of the day. It's a sensation like no other to reel a fish in and have that feeling of excitement, but at the time I was still a little scared of slimy fish. However, there was no dad or friend to help me get the fish off the line, just me and my bare hands as I grabbed the bass’ lip and took out the hook for the first time on my own.

You hear Phil yelling behind you but his words are slurred and you know he is more and more under the influence of the crab. You look back and stumble. The obsidian falls out of your hand and down the slope-you won’t find it. However you have to keep running. And you step into the helicopter you realize you have never driven one before.
“Rikki-tikki-tavi” Retelling The events that brought Rikki to his new home was that a high summer flood washed him out of his burrow. During the flood he was kicking, and clucking and got drained in a ditch on the side of the road. He then saw a little patch of grass floating and clung on to that but he lost his senses. Then he got revived, he was lying in the middle of a garden path. When Rikki saw the snakes at first he was a little scared, but he knew it’s impossible for any mongoose to be afraid for a period of time.
After being underwater for a long time Nanaboozhoo surfaced with no earth. Next, the Loon (Mahng) went under the water to try and find earth, but like Nanaboozhoo also was unsuccessful in their dive. Next was the hell-diver (Zhing-gi-biss) dove expecting to be able to make it, but after a while he too surfaced with no earth in his possession. Many more animals dove down but failed including the Mink (Zhon-gwayzh) and also the turtle (Zhee-kay). Then came the Muskrat (Wa-zhushk), who stepped forward and said “I’ll try”.
In conclusion, manatees are becoming extinct because people are populating the water that manatees live in which is causing them to die. Manatees are being struck by boats when people drive through shallow water too fast, because they cannot see them in time to move out of the way. Manatees are also becoming extinct because they are eating toxic algae that is produced from the
