Ralph and Jack are slightly at odds because they both have a desire to be leaders. In addition, the two boys have completely different priorities.

“Ralph’s right of course. There isn’t a snake-thing. But if there was a snake we’d hunt it and kill it. We’re going to hunt pigs to get meat for everybody. And we’ll look for the snake too–”
“But there isn’t a snake!”
“We’ll make sure when we go hunting.”
