Part 2 Chapter 76 Summary

Pi made a point of cleaning up after Richard Parker and trying to keep his area of the boat clean. This became significant after he noticed the tiger trying to hide his feces one day.

Pi took advantage of this and exerted his dominance by handling the tiger's feces in front of him so that it made him nervous but not provoked.
