The eagles also represent Brutus and Cassius, two great men and warriors who have come far in their lives, until now. The day of the battle, when the great eagles are then replaced by the ravens, crows, and kites, those dark birds symbolize death and loss which Shakespeare uses to prophecies the suicide of Cassius and Brutus.

Both of these lions, which represent Caesar, are acting unnaturally and Shakespeare meant for the lions to represent how Caesar was acting unnatural himself, with his fainting and seizures to his untimely death right before he becomes king.

Also, Pi has to live in a scary environment and my evidence that supports this is he has to live with a 350- pound tiger and he can barely go on the boat because the tiger knows when he is on the boat. The similarities are there both dangerous because has to fight with a mother polar bear and two cubs and Pi can’t really go on the boat because the tiger is always there or the tiger sometimes is watching him. The differences are that Pi has two fight with a lot of bears and Pi has to face with a hungry tiger. In conclusion, Keesh and Pi have to survive in an extreme environment. They both have to survive by using their resources and they both do.
