Part 2 Chapter 42 Summary

Pi sees the zoo's prize Borneo orangutan floating on a mound of bananas. Her name was Orange Juice because of her drooling problem. She drifts toward the life boat and steps off the mound and into the life boat. Pi grabs the net she was sitting on and pulls it into the boat instead of grabbing the bananas. The orangutan is in shock and lies on the tarp.
