This early conversation between Whitney and Rainsford foreshadows the events to come. Rainsford will soon experience the position of the jaguar as he is hunted by Zaroff on Ship-Trap island. The brief exchange highlights Rainsford's outlook on the sport of hunting. He expresses a lack of empathy for the plight of the hunted. Whitney, on the other hand, has empathy for the hunted and acknowledges his belief that the animals just might have feelings. Over the course of Rainsford's experiences, his disposition will change remarkably.
