Would You Survive 225 days Trapped on a Lifeboat With a Thirsty T

Can you survive for 225 days in a lifeboat on the Pacific with a thirsty tiger? This is based off of The Life of Pi, by Yann Martel. The tiger, Richard Parker, is on the life boat you are trapped on after a cargo ship you were taking to Canada failed itself and drowned the passengers.

This quiz is solely based off of the book, so there may be some elements in the book you may not be aware of if you only watched the movie. Richard Parker was supposed to be named Thirsty, but was instead accidentally given the name of the hunter who captured him. He is, however, about 250 pounds now and willing to eat you. Good luck.
