    “…We should have some good hunting up the Amazon. Great sport, hunting." "The best sport in the world." "For the hunter," amended Whitney. "Not for the jaguar." "Don't talk rot, Whitney," said Rainsford. "You're a big-game hunter, not a philosopher. Who cares how a jaguar feels?" "Perhaps the jaguar does," observed Whitney. "Bah! They've no understanding." "Even so, I rather think they understand one thing—fear. The fear of pain and the fear of death."

    It don't think it is C. My instinct is to say that it is D, seeing as this is one of my favorite short stories, if not my favorite. The only other option that may work is A, but the book doesn't really play on instinct.
