The storm sinks the boat and Pi takes a lifeboat, attempting to save some animals.
Pi was able to save a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan, and a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.
The hyena gets hungry, so it starts eating the zebra and kills the orangutan later.
After a while, the hyena came back up from the tarp to eat Pi. Luckily, Richard Parker killed the hyena to protect Pi.
After months of surviving on the boat, Pi and Richard Parker stumble upon an island that is full of meerkats.
Pi later discovers that although the island has unlimited food, there was acidic algae in the water that was slowly killing him, Richard Parker stays on the island. Pi leaves and is saved by other boaters. He had been at sea for 227 days!
