Hello Anna ,Thanks for responding . I was thinking for the ending instead of the one in the movie .Pi has removed his white trousers and tied them to the top of the mast of the boat hoping to catch the attention of passing ships . He and the tiger have been at sea for weeks , they have eaten some fish , but fresh water is a problem , They are both very tired and week , The large tiger lays on the seat at the back of the life boat. . Both of them are close to death so Pi decideds to move closer to the Tiger . He is just wearing what you see in picture .He moves in closer to the tiger and lifts it`s head up and lays it in his lap , It growls at him but is weak and does nothing at moment . Pi Strokes its head and slips into a deep death like sleep .

T he tiger Licks at Pi`s bare thigh getting some moisture from his skin . It continues to do this slowly getting some of it`s strength back.

It continues to lick around that area. Pi is uncounsious as the cat continues to get stronger and hungrier again.

What will happen as the cat gets stronger and needs more food. Many thnaks look forward to hearing from you.

The tiger has been lying there listlessly for hours. The hunger gnaws painfully at his stomach. His throat is parched. When Pi moves close to him and takes the tiger’s head on his lap, the tiger understands he is looking for comfort as they both die. Tot he tiger, Pi smells of food, meat. The odour alone causes him to perk up a bit. He begins licking Pi’s thighs. They taste a bit salty and meaty. It’s tempting. The tiger is conflicted. He and Pi have had their ups and downs, but for the most part, this young man has been good to him. The tiger continues licking, moving his coarse tongue over Pi’s skin. The scent of food becomes overwhelming to him.

Suddenly, the tiger’s instincts kick in. He grabs Pi by the throat, as tigers do when they go in for a kill. Blood is not drawn. Pi panics for a few seconds, but he is terribly weak, and quickly goes into shock. The tiger patiently maintains his hold, awaiting death. The tiger senses when the heartbeat has stopped and breathing has ceased. He releases his hold and lets the limp body fall to the floor.

Tigers typically eat the hindquarters first, so he starts with the buttocks. He’s so hungry that he chomps down big chunks taking in torn pieces of the shorts, as well. Then the remainder of the lower half of the body would be eaten. That would include the area under the shorts. The ample blood in that area helps to quench his thirst, so he chews slowly, savouring the blood trickling down his throat and the tender meat. He continues to tear off chunks at a time and eat them. His powerful jaws can crush bones and chew them. Many times, after ingesting the lower half of the body, a tiger will wander off to rest and digest its food, but this tiger is too hungry for that. He goes on eating, until every morsel is consumed. Then he licks every drop of blood from the floor.

The tiger walks to the other end of the boat. He cleans his paws by licking them, and uses his now damp paws to clean the blood from his face. He feels strong again. It is better this way than for both of them to have died. The tiger yawns, tired after his big meal. He curls up with his face resting on a big paw, and falls asleep, satisfied for the first time in weeks.

Wow .Great,Fantastic scene.When the tiger is licking at Pi`s thighs and getting thoughts of eating him , but then returns to just licking would it move to licking the front of Pi`s tight brief shorts ?

What would the tiger think of the tight shorts and what it can taste throu them?

Would the tiger be able to take the entire front of Pi`s shorts into it`s mouth and continue to lick at it , trying to remove the strange fur with it`s tongue ?

when the Tiger starts to feed on what had been in the front of Pi`s shorts ,would it still be wrapped in the tight material and would it just consume and swallow the material as well?

Would the Tiger eat Pi`s head ?

To add insult to injury not long after the tiger finishes eating and goes to sleep a ship passes buy not seeing them , the life boat continues to drift until it washes a shore 3 days later , the tiger slips ashore and lives the rest of it`s life on the island . the Life boat id caught by a wave and taken out to sea again , it is then found by a passing ship , that stops to search for surviours , they find Pi`s diary of what had happened , what else would they find on the bottom of the life boat .

Many many thanks for your great help.

He would probably lick to try to remove the 'fur.'

What would the tiger think of the tight shorts and what it can taste throu them?

He would think the shorts were very strange fur. The taste and scent of what was under them would make his mouth water.

Would the tiger be able to take the entire front of Pi`s shorts into it`s mouth and continue to lick at it , trying to remove the strange fur with it`s tongue ?

He would be able to do that. Given how hungry he is, though, when the shorts couldn't be licked off, he'd probably just give up on removing them and start eating.

when the Tiger starts to feed on what had been in the front of Pi`s shorts ,would it still be wrapped in the tight material and would it just consume and swallow the material as well?

He wouldn't have been able to lick the shorts off, so would consume and swallow everything.

Would the Tiger eat Pi`s head ?

Yes, because he has been starving. His jaws would be strong enough to crush the skull.He would most likely lick off the hair on his head first.

They find Pi`s diary of what had happened , what else would they find on the bottom of the life boat .

Pi's head hair and tiger droppings containing the shorts. They would be able to figure out what happened.
