Keywords:

anthropomorphism, anthropocentrism, representation.

Abstract
Human culture has witnessed myriads of attitudes towards the fast vanishing tribe of jungle cats all around the world. Each representation has brought with itself an anthropomorphic appropriation ascertaining the anthropocentric instincts of the human, the possessor of superior culture and of language. Is it truly possible to evade one’s unconscious anthropomorphic instincts in the representation of jungle predators? In the light of this question I attempt to analyse in this paper the representation of the wild predator animals, in the short stories of Ruskin Bond.
