Factual error: On the isolated island, the meerkats stood up and see Richard Parker and then Richard happily eats some of them while the others watch. Meerkats would run away when they sense, hear or see a nearby predator.

More quotes from Life of Pi


Question: What are we supposed to believe at the end of the film? Or is it deliberately left ambiguous? My mum had this theory that Pi made up the animal story to escape the reality of his ordeal. What do you think about the ending?

Chosen answer: It's completely up to the viewer to decide. There's no right or wrong answer.

Question: Why does the tiger keep trying to kill Pi? It has 3 other dead animals to feed on. The monkey and the hyena were fresh kills, the hyena killing the monkey then the tiger killing it, and the zebra killed the night before. With all that fresh meat, why attack Pi?

Chosen answer: From the Tiger's perspective, Pi is competition for territory (the boat) and may try to steal his food.

Question: The tiger ate a full zebra, hyena, monkey, and tones of fish. So where is all its crap?

Chosen answer: Being as how there was a ready supply of water in which to rinse his hands, I'm certain Pi was simply throwing it overboard.
