An example of a metaphor from Chapter 5 of The Pearl can be found in this line: "He was an animal now, for hiding, for attacking, and he lived only to preserve himself and his family." This is on page 62 of my copy, a Penguin book paperback edition.
The comparison is, of course, between the man (Kino) and a wild animal.
