Life of Pi Part 1, Chapter 32

By Yann Martel

Part 1, Chapter 32

  • Pi tells about some animal's curious living arrangements: it's called zoomorphism.
  • Well, since you asked, it's when one animal takes another to be its own kind. Like humans keeping dogs. Or, earlier, Pi talked about rhinos and goats living together. Pi gives us some more examples.
  • Keep this chapter in mind for the oddest of all odd living arrangements: Richard Parker and Pi.
